: To celebrate the recent arrival of their newborn daughter, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have publicly requested charitable donations in lieu of baby gifts. A charity auction for an original painting of Kanye West by well-known speed painter Aaron Kizer will begin today, with 100% of the proceeds from the winning bid going to Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago, the couple’s charity of choice. The painting made its live debut in the music video for “These Walls Revisited” produced by Kanye West (with new additional production by Michael A. Smith and Jonathan Hay). The song was revisited at the 10-year anniversary of its release by Nappy Roots, and has since garnered popularity on numerous major hip-hop sites around the world. The auction will begin today, June 19, 2013 and end on July 3, 2013 at 6pm EST.
To sweeten the deal, Michael A. Smith has generously offered to match the winning bid amount, doubling the impact of the donation. “I chose to become a matching donor for this auction because I think it is a great cause and I am really appreciative of the opportunity from Nappy Roots and Jonathan Hay to perform on a song originally produced by Kanye. Additionally, outside of being a musician and singer, I own a chain a medical practices and I am always wanting to call attention to the need for funding for great caregiving facilities such as Lurie Children’s Hospital. This is my small way of saying thanks.” – Michael A Smith (Co-Producer of These Walls Revisited).
