"Since the age of 12, he knew he wanted to make music. Dreams are so important to kids growing-up. Too many children do not have the financial ability to pursue their dreams. We want to use this fund to help kids do just that: to get an education â to pursue music â to get the chance to chase their dreams. Truett would love that."

Mckeehan was found dead in Nashville, Tennessee, last week of undetermined causes.
"Truett Foster Mckeehan had joy that took the room when he entered. He was a magnetic son and brother and friend," the Christeian rapper (born Kevin Michael McKeehan) wrote in an emotional In Memoriam post. "If you met him, you knew him, you remembered him. His smile, his laugh, the encouragement he offered with words or even without. He had an untamable grand personality and dreams to match. And he hated being put in a box."
A representative for TobyMac said Mckeenhan, the rapper's oldest son, died sometime âTuesday night or Wednesday morningâ and a cause of death has not been determined, according to the Associated Press. TobyMac has won seven Grammys, both as a solo artist and as a member of the Christian rap/rock group DC Talk.
