This is a blog about me sulking in the misery of living in such close proximity to NPR and not having the luxury to see any of the artists perform there. Yesterday, following his performance in Bristow, VA via his Be Encouraged Tour, Chance paid a special visit to NPR’s Tiny Desk. For those who are unfamiliar, the Tiny Desk series are for aspiring artists looking to promote their music; showcasing them live in a portion of the NPR building. Typically, the performances are recorded and published on the web for greater exposure. Seeing as Chance is such a big household name at this point, this was no ordinary announcement you hear everyday at the company. And honestly, these reactions were a little too tame if you ask me.

Turns out, Chance ended up playing three songs and read a poem. Literally the coolest job on the planet.
“Oh, what do you do for work again?”
“I work for NPR; you know that company that hosts free concerts for their employees in the office space all the time. Yeah, yesterday Chance stopped by.”

These folks should never ever complain about how hard their job is. Lucky bastards.
P.S. the video is expected to hit the Internet in “about a week,” according All Songs Considered host Bob Boilen.
