THE LOOP — Chance The Rapper led a "parade to the polls" Monday after playing a free Downtown block party. 

Twin Peaks, Chance's brother Taylor Bennett, and Malcolm London played the party Monday at the Petrillo Music Shell in Grant Park, 235 S. Columbus Drive.

Chance — born Chancelor Bennett — played "Angels," "No Problem" and "Blessings" off his Coloring Book album before leading the parade to the Loop's early voting "super site," 15 W. Washington St.

The event fell the day before Tuesday's election, and the last day of early voting. A record number of Chicagoans have voted early this year. The super site, which boasts more than 100 new touch screen voting booths, closes Monday night.

Chance previously said the event would be in front of the Virgin Hotel, but anticipated turnout outgrew the venue.
