Joanna travels to Los Angeles, California to meet will.i.am on his home turf – spending time with him at his mansion in Los Feliz, meeting his friends and family, and returning with him to his childhood home in the social housing projects of Boyle Heights in East Los Angeles.
She accompanies will.i.am as he journeys back to his old elementary school, Brentwood Science Magnet, where the course of his life was changed forever by an inspirational teacher John Wright, and watches him compose and create a special song about his mother.
Brentwood Science Magnet was honored to have will.i.am visit. Our students were inspired knowing that Will.i.am shared a similar life experience with them. Go Tigers!
