John Legend dropped in on a celebration to support kids with big dreams

Legend's appearance in Minneapolis wasn't announced ahead of time.

John Legend swung by Minneapolis' Fine Line Music Cafe to hang out with the ordinary people of the Twin Cities over the weekend.

The 38-year-old surprised kids for One Saturday to Dream Fearlessly – a program from American Family Insurance and Mashable that's all about supporting dreams and inspiring communities.

In Minneapolis they teamed with Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Greater Twin Cities for the Saturday get-together.

Legend was not announced ahead of time – so for a few good "Holy s--t it's John Legend!" anecdotes check out Star Tribune's story.

In addition to hanging out with Legend, the attendees got to learn about coding, dance, play with some next-generation technology, star in a music video, and just have a good time.

This is the fourth Dream Fearlessly event. The others have been held in Atlanta, Seattle and Madison.

"I feel so inspired and was happy to help inspire these young people to pursue their dreams," Legend wrote on Instagram.

Legend recently wrappped up his North American Light and Dark tour, which included a performance at Northrop Auditorium in Minneapolis on June 7.
