“To see these kids get up here and be fearless and just kind of, you know … just put themselves out there,” he said. “I got inspired again … I got the chills.”

The kids Jordan met with are in a program called the Future Project, which works to empower students through the arts.

“Dreams are so important,” Jordan said. “The arts, manifest those emotions. They manifest … those dreams.”

“You cut the arts out,” he added, “you’re cutting kids’ ability … to dream.”
