Shaun Boothe’s Unauthorized Biography Series

Attend this FREE event co-presented by the University of Alberta’s Chester Ronning Centre and the Jeanne & Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre.

Shaun Boothe is an award-winning hip-hop artist, TEDx speaker and creator of ‘The Unauthorized Biography Series’.

The Unauthorized Biography Series is a critically acclaimed musical project that celebrates the world’s greatest cultural icons through biographical raps songs ­Repackaging History through Hip-Hop.

Each chapter of the series captures the legacy of an influential iconic figure in a documentary-style music video. Icons featured in the series include Bob Marley, Muhammad Ali, Serena Williams, Malala Yousafzai, Terry Fox, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and more. Getting praise from the families of many of the icons in his series – performing for MLK, III himself – and a feature on, it’s clear that he’s getting the attention of the right people.

After spending 10+ years in the music industry, sharing stages with the likes of Snoop Dogg, Lauryn Hill and Kendrick Lamar, a search for a more purposeful path led Shaun to the education market.

It was here where he discovered how his Unauthorized Biography Series, combined with his passion for speaking, could be used as a powerful tool to both entertain and inspire others to achieve their own greatness.

A few short years later, this new direction has grown into a thriving international career as an inspirational speaker.

A matinee session is available for school groups to attend for free from 1:30-2:30 p.m. on January 29 (appropriate for grades 5-9). If you’re interested in attending with your class, please contact the Lougheed Box Office.
