Growing up on the city’s west side, Sean Anderson spent time at the Children’s Center, and boys and girls clubs where he was empowered by community leaders to follow his passions. Detroit native Big Sean gave back to his community in a huge way on Saturday (Aug. 17). As a part of his second annual DON Weekend hosted by his Sean Anderson Foundation, a $100,00 production studio was installed on the city’s west side at the Dick & Sandy Dauch Boys & Girls Club.

There, he unveiled the Sean Anderson Foundation Content & Production Studio, a state-of-the-art facility that will be available for useby students and adults. The facility’s construction was supported by a $100,000 grant from the Sean Anderson Foundation. Equipped with headphones, audio workstations, DJ controllers and mini-performance stage, Sean’s latest investment follows the 2015 recording studio that he opened at his alma mater Cass Tech.

Anderson smiled and recorded youth performances as they sang their covers and original songs and filmed music videos. The facility aims to expose people to different aspects of the entertainment industry, including production and behind-the-scenes work.
