While the pandemic stopped large gatherings, in lieu of an outdoor event such as the 1st annual Angela Yee Day, the virtual celebration of Angela Yee Day included a mobile video truck that rode through Brooklyn and Queens throughout the day.

August 28, 2020 was Angela Yee Day and I was planning to sit it out this year and focus on community service but @chelseafied and @iamstilettogoddess at @vprecords and @parisnguy convinced me to still produce a virtual concert AND I decided it would be the perfect time to support and visit some black owned businesses in Brooklyn. With the help of @power1051 @wingstop @wrayandnephewus @miss_jessies @djnorie we were able to celebrate this day as well as the release of #ReggaeGold2020. I also urged people to donate to some of the organizations I work with like @afuwi @wearefamilyfdtn @shirleychisholminstitute @nypl @thenmaam and launched my own foundation focused on nutrition, wellness and literacy @wethewellread ?. Extra special gratitude to the artists who lent their time and extraordinary talents for the day, you can catch the full concert on the @breakfastclubam YouTube page: @queenifrica @realromainvirgo @Noahpowa @kesthebandofficial @JoshXantus @iAmchrismartin @ajjiworld @dmajormuzic @hoodcelebrityy @kranium @kingbeenieman And shout to @thebakeryonbergen @juicesforlifebk @daddygreenspizzabk @eclecticwineliquor @tillysbklyn @suedenyc @footprintscafe @negrilbk @mangoseedbklyn @zurileebklyn @brooklynroasting @coffeeupliftspeople @planetbklynacademy @isaywesay
The purpose of Angela Yee Day, officially declared by Mayor Bill de Blasio on August 28th 2018, is about being of service to the community.
