Kelly Clarkson and LeBron James to Inspire Youth in TV Special


In a 30-minute broadcast, the stars who have gained success in the respective fields will talk about the role of education has played in their lives.

Supporting President Barack Obama's goal to have bigger number of highly-skilled workers in U.S., Kelly Clarkson and LeBron James team up with Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation for a project called "Get Schooled: You Have the Right". The singer and the basketball ace will inspire America's youth to pursue higher education in a TV special aired on September 8.

MTV, Nickelodeon, BET, CMT and 18 other youth-oriented channels owned by Viacom TV will broadcast it simultaneously on the day that also marks the start of a new U.S. school year. Kelly and James, who are high school graduates, will talk about key educators in their lives who helped them to succeed.

"I know first hand how important it is for young people to have role models who can inspire them about the importance of education and help them make good choices that will provide them with the tools to succeed," James said in a statement.

Clarkson also shared her opinion, telling Us Magazine, "Lots of young people run into problems beyond their control, like finances, that keep them from pursuing their education. At that point, it's easy to give up. But I believe it's important to continue to work hard and learn from everyone and everything around you."
