Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
Aloe Blacc recently said, "My purpose for music is positive social change." He started as a hip-hop artist in the 1990s, and then transformed from rapper to singer, without discarding his hip-hop spirit and social awareness.

Since launching his solo career in 2003, Aloe Blacc has played all over the world. With "Wake Me Up," the 2013 mega-hit he sang and co-wrote for Swedish DJ Avicii and saw climb to #1 in 102 countries across the globe, Aloe Blacc proved himself a singer/songwriter with an irresistible power to capture the complexities of human emotion.
