Imagine going to school to find out that Will Smith was visiting…and that he would rap the ’Fresh Prince of Bel Air’ theme song. Wouldn’t that be surreal?
That’s what happened to some lucky ladies of St Martin-in-the-fields High School for Girls in south London this past week. While it’s been more than 20 years since Fresh Prince first aired, the students were treated with an awesome performance by Smith who at the age of 44, is still getting jiggy with it.
According to The Independent, Member of Parliament Chuka Umunna, who is an admitted fan of the show, planned the assembly and arranged for the actor’s appearance.
Smith was in London accompanying his son Jaden on the UK leg of his tour with Justin Bieber.
Now if this happened to me in real life, I think I would be pinching myself for days!! ’Fresh Prince’ may be over, but the legacy of the show will certainly live on!!
