Bryson Tiller Helps Repair Louisville Basketball Courts: ‘It’s Possible Here’ [VIDEO]
Bryson Tiller has given back to his hometown of Louisville, KY. in a major way. In an effort to keep the local youth active during the summer, the True to Self singer teamed up with Nike to donate new basketball courts to Wyandotte Park, reports courier-journal.
In an Instagram post, Tiller said that when he saw the dilapidated courts he made it a goal to repair them for the local kids in the area. The Grammy-nominated singer also reflected on the city's mantra and how it relates to his newfound success in the R&B game.
"A few years ago while working on Trapsoul, I was flying back home to Louisville to visit my family," he writes. "When I landed, I saw a poster of the city and it was captioned "Its Possible Here" and I just stood there in awe like wow."
"It really IS possible here. it's possible to make it out of this city even though people would always tell me it wasn't," he concluded.
On Wednesday (June 7), at a special ceremony to unveiled the newly refurbished basketball courts, Tiller told the young people the same thing. "Anybody on this court who has a dream, if you believe in yourself, you can do it," he said.
Afterward, Louisville mayor Greg Fischer presented Tiller with a proclamation for his charitable efforts.
