Jamie Foxx & Quvenzhane Wallis Take 'Annie' To Minnesota For School Visit

Jamie Foxx and Quvenzhane Wallis make a surprise visit to Northport Elementary school on Wednesday afternoon (September 10) in Brooklyn Center, Minn.

The 46-year-old actor and 11-year-old actress were joined by their Annie director Will Gluck for the fun visit.

The visit kicked off Turnaround Arts, a signature program of the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities which works with local program partners to provide intensive arts education resources to clusters of high-poverty schools across the country, leading to increases in attendance, academic achievement, and student engagement.

Jamie shared, “Arts education is a way to make a real difference in the lives of kids everywhere. Being involved with the arts certainly changed my life, and I’ve seen that engagement change the lives of many others.”

Quvenzhané added, “I was excited to visit the school today. We had so much fun and I’m glad that they are preparing for their own production of Annie. Every Annie can be different, which is one of the reasons why it is so great to be a part of.”
