John Legend at the Believe School in New Orleans

Grammy-winning artist John Legend joins the party from New Orleans, where he's on location at KIPP Believe College Prep with students and their families. "Oprah, this school library desperately needed a little Oprah Show makeover love. So over the past several weeks it has been rebuilt in your honor," John says.

To complete the makeover, more than 100 Target team members worked around the clock, filling the shelves with 2,000 brand new books and installing dozens of new computers, an interactive whiteboard and a state-of-the-art system to keep track of all the titles. Inspirational artwork was added to the walls, and now, there's even a "chill zone" where students can kick back and read.

But that's not all! In honor of Oprah's historic 25 seasons, Target and The Heart of America Foundation are planning to rebuild 25 additional school libraries across the country.
