As part of a program that encourages children to attend school and maximize their education, Ne-Yo visited Aki Kurose Middle School in Seattle on Monday to be its principal for the day.
The students earned the honors of having the Grammy-winning artist head their school for the day by winning Get Schooled Foundation’s national attendance challenge.
"I am happy to partner with the Get Schooled Foundation to encourage attendance and education. It’s so important to show up, be present and pay attention so your dream becomes a successful reality," Ne-Yo said as he compared school life to his work as a singer-songwriter.
Check out the video clip above of Ne-Yo as "Principal for the Day" to see him make an announcement over the loud speaker, lecture in the classroom, and perform in the school auditorium.
