Funk legend Bootsy Collins celebrated Thanksgiving this year by giving back to his community of Walnut Hills in Cincinnati, Ohio. He spent Wednesday afternoon at a local Kroger supermarket signing autographs and hosting a free raffle for gift baskets of food and turkeys.
“We wanted to give back to the community in which I grew up in,” Bootsy explained. “I used to live right down the street.”
Collins also helped to make a new fight song for the University of Cincinnati, which he premiered with a music video in his downtown Cincinnati restaurant. The video was made to raise money for the Bootsy Collins Foundation and to help build a UC domed practice field for the football team.
