Life Imitates Art - DRUMLINE Star Nick Cannon Begins Howard University as Freshman

AMERICA'S GOT TALENT host Nick Cannon took to Instagram this week to reveal that life indeed imitates art as he begins classes as a freshman at Howard University in Washington DC.

Many will recall that Cannon starred in the 2002 film DRUMLINE, in which he portrayed a marching band drummer at the fictitious Atlanta A&T University, similar to Howard.

In a recent interview with ET, Cannon shared that he'll be majoring in "strategic legal and management communications." He explained, "It's something I've always wanted to do, and I truly feel like it's the next stage in my life.Entertainment is outstanding but I truly want to utilize my voice, I want to be a part of the community, and I'm always encouraging young people and being an advocate for education, so I need to make sure I get mine first."
