Tameka Foster won’t let her son’s death be in vain.
Usher’s ex-wife launched a foundation called “Kile’s World” on what would have been his 12th birthday in her son’s memory. The foundation will emphasize water safety by enforcing laws, policies, and through education. Foster tweeted that the foundation will also offer “art-based camps with multiple workshops including general instruction in the areas of acting, singing, dance, painting, illustration, music production and digital media.” She hopes it will turn into a magnet school for the arts.
The event was launched at the Woodruff Arts Center in Atlanta, and attended by her other four sons, Bow Wow’s mother Teresa Caldwell, and Brie Rowe and Sharlinda Parker from the show “Big Rich Atlanta” among others.
Her son Kile Glover was killed from injuries sustained while after being hit by a jet ski while floating in an inner tube on a lake in Atlanta last summer.
