Ridgio 300X300

Impressed with his positive message during a chance meeting, LOK board member Arlene Francis introduced Chicago rapper Ridgio to the LOK Wishing Tree’s mission of unleashing the artistic dreams of youth. The mission culminates each year in early June for the LOK Young Artist Expo. This year, Ridgio will be joining in with a special performance on Friday, June 2nd at the Lubeznik Center for the Arts in Michigan City.

From the west side of Chicago, Ridgio is a budding artist who seeks to impact the World with the true word of God through his music. Ridgio is also an acronym that stands for “Realest Individual Doing God’s Incredible Overtaking”. He began taking music seriously at the age of 17; since then he has released 3 projects. He has performed throughout Chicago and will appear for the first time in Northwest Indiana on Saturday, May 20th in Gary.

Ridgio takes experiences from his troubled past and his journey with God to deliver a positive message, often including biblical references throughout his music. Ridgio states, “Knowing God is real is important, but knowing what he requires from us as men and woman is essential.”

Ridgio will also make an appearance earlier in the day on June 2nd at the Boys & Girls Club of Michigan City (performance open to members only). His performance at the Lubeznik Center on June 2nd at 6pm is free and open to the public.
