John Legend: Give the Gift of Rescue

International recording artist, Oscar, Golden Globe, and nine-time Grammy winner John Legend believes that every child deserves the chance to thrive in school. During his visit to the IRC's Refugee Summer Youth Academy, John learned more about the challenges refugees face in getting a quality education.
