Watch Steve Aoki make a 6-year-old’s wish come true
Between his producing hits with international acts and touring as one of EDM’s pioneering superstars, Steve Aoki has made it a continued point to prioritize charitable activities into his schedule. The Neon Future producer hosted the first ever Aoki Games in September and raised more than $250,000 for brain research. His latest endeavor saw him partnering with nonprofit Kids Wish Network to make a young fan’s dream come true.
With the foundation’s help, 6-year-old fan Jamar Woods a.k.a. DJ Masterpiece and his family received the chance to travel to Las Vegas and spend the day with Aoki at his “playhouse.” Jamar has aspired to be a DJ since he was two, but faced challenges upon being diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. Kids Wish Network helps grant wishes to children between the ages of three and 18 who battle life-threatening medical conditions.
During the ultimate playdate, Aoki and Jamar played piano together, signed each other’s custom shirts, and hung out in the ball pit—collectively sharing both a heartwarming and inspirational day that touched everyone.
“A very special thank you to Steve Aoki for graciously inviting us into your home, for your hospitality, and kindness in taking time out of your day to inspire Jamar,” said Kids Wish Network Executive Director, Tam Lai.
