Ellen DeGeneres, Big Sean and More Star in 'Read It' Music Video With Second-Graders

Migos, Ice Cube, Ty Dolla $ign and Lin-Manuel Miranda also contribute some verses to the educational track, which was written by multi-talented teacher Michael Bonner.

AceShowbiz - %cEllen DeGeneres% has teamed up with second-grade students and their multi-talented teacher Michael Bonner to release a new music video for a song titled "Read It". Dropping by "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" on Friday, February 17, Bonner premiered the clip which features his students and some familiar musicians including %cBig Sean%.

Bonner kicks off the video in his class where he teaches his students. As the bell rings, Sean walks into the class with slow motion effect before he starts rapping the song along with the kids. Set to the instrumental of %cO.T. Genasis%' "Push It", they rap, "Kids won't stay in their seats, they keep talking to me/ Leave me alone, leave me alone, man you know I love to read/ Reading helps us learn information for school/ So we can answer questions and we can be cool."

Elsewhere in the clip, Sean goes riding on a scooter with Bonner and the kids, while award-winning composer %cLin-Manuel Miranda%, %cTy Dolla $ign% and %cMigos% come in for a couple of verses. DeGeneres and %cIce Cube% also make appearances in the clip as they sing the chorus of the track, while hip-hop dancer %ctWitch% shows off some on-point dance moves with the second-graders.

Michael Bonner first appeared on "Ellen" last month, when the host donated $25,000 to the South Greenville elementary school and created a GoFundMe page that has since earned over $80,000. He went viral with a hip-hop track called "Who, What, When, Where, Why, How Song" to help his student learn.
