On yesterdays episode of ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show“, Ellen surprises a DJ from Dorchester, Boston with a brand new SUV car and an additional $10,000!!! This is no surprise to me, because Ellen has always been the type of person to pay it forward to people who haven’t been acknowledged for their hard work and generosity.
The Ellen show ambushed Mike Boston at his workplace in the Seaport, greeted by Ellen’s traveling host Jeannie who was dressed in a blue poofy dress, beehive wig and a camera man. Jeannie proceeds to play a trivia game so that he can earn prizes.
Mike Boston, works at a local ad agency, and operates a mobile studio called Mobile Stü right out of his pick up truck. To help the youth, he lets the young people uses it for free to “empower kids to make their voices heard anytime, anywhere, on hip hop tracks of their own creation“, he stated on his website via a video.
One of Mike’s most popular projects caught the attention of ABC affiliate WCVB, which was a song called ‘One Beat for Peace‘, a collaboration between Dorchesters youth and Boston’s police department. You can listen to the track by heading to iTunes.
Now back to the Ellen show…. Mike won the car in one of Ellen’s wacky segments called ‘Cash at Your Car‘. He answered multiple questions, some wrong some right, but if you know Ellen you NEVER LOSE! And as soon as Ellen told him he was going to take home the SUV right behind him, he visually broke down and started to cry, but was even more shocked when she gave him $10,000 on top of that.
We love us some Ellen, so we were happy a DJ who loves to play a positive role in the community for the children, got this opportunity because he definitely deserved it.
