VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — In 2019, Pharrell Williams launched Something in the Water in Virginia Beach, and now, he shares the story behind why he created the music and cultural festival in his hometown.
In a mini film called “Building Empathy,” Pharrell tells the story behind SITW which turned College Beach Week — known for its negative reputation involving violence and crime — into one “associated with goodwill and empathy.”
Uninterrupted and MasterClass partnered to launch a series of films titled ‘The Power You Hold.’ The mini-series examines “issues of social injustice and systemic racism” while offering “education and inspiration on ways to impact change.”
Uninterrupted is an all-digital sports programming network founded by LeBron James and Maverick Carter featuring videos from the athlete’s perspective, original series, podcasts, and documentaries.
