Everyone needs a little wholesome news in their lives, and Steve Aoki is here to deliver it today. The artist teamed up with Kids Wish Network, to grant a 6-year old named Jamar, AKA DJ Masterpiece, the ultimate play date. This aspiring young DJ and Steve Aoki might just be the most adorable collab that we’ve seen to date.
Kids Wish Network grants wishes to children with life-threatening illnesses or kids who have undergone life-altering situations. Jamar dreams about becoming a DJ when he grows up, and says that music distracts him from the stresses of his life-threatening illness. On his 6th birthday, Jamar’s mom gifted him with a turntable and microphone to help him pursue his dreams. Since then, Jamar transforms into DJ Masterpiece when he’s on the decks.
After receiving a personal invite from Steve Aoki, Kids Wish Network flew Jamar and his family out to Vegas to visit “Aoki’s Playhouse” home for the ultimate play date. Aoki welcomes Jamar and his family with open arms, giving Jamar a private tour through his home. The two traded and signed one another’s shirts as gifts. Aoki also gives Jamar the most heart-warming piano lesson – a true gift of music. You can watch more heartfelt moments in the video below.
Kids Wish Network Executive Director Tam Lai thanked the artist, saying:
“A very special thank you to Steve Aoki for graciously inviting us into your home, for your hospitality, and kindness in taking time out of your day to inspire Jamar.”
