Chance the Rapper Turns the Arthur Theme Song Into a Delightful Crowd-Pleaser

To be clear: The cover performed below is of the theme song for the beloved PBS children’s show adapted from the Arthur book series, not the Academy Award-winning classic from the 1981 movie of the same name. And while it would be equally fascinating to see the talented Chance the Rapper interpret the latter, his take on the former at the Sasquatch! Music Festival last weekend is too delightful to ignore.

The performer showed off his singing chops and got the crowd involved in a rousing chant of “Everyday it could be wonderful!” Indeed.
