Bruno Mars donates $1 Million to Flint Water Crisis

From his show last night in Michigan.

Btw, anyone here on the org has seen him yet on his 24K Magic World Tour?

Wow--that is really wonderful! It is a nice option to have that kind of money to share with those in need, and I am sure that the people of Flint, MI will be greatfully receptive of such a donation. I hope that he's taken time to speak with the city's CBO leadership to get a good idea of where to send his checks.

I still don't care for his music or persona but this has helped me to respect him a bit more as an artist and human being. It must be difficult to have seeminly unlimited resources and visit/perform in an area where the most basic resource is compromised.

if he really wants to help, he should drink gallons of the most contaminated water in Flint, and take a very very long nap...

I was there at the concert Saturday night and witnessed this in person. I was so surprised and touched by his generosity! He really puts his money where his mouth is, I'm so glad I'm a fan of a genuine and caring man with a big heart. Bruno is a superstar in the real sense of the word!

Here's my video I took of his announcement:


Him and his band also did a surprise performance of "I Want You Back" as a tribute to Motown! music






He really put on one helluva incredible show that night!



ETA: Bruno's statement on the Flint Water Crisis:




"I'm very thankful to the Michigan audience for joining me in supporting this cause," Mars said in a statement. "Ongoing challenges remain years later for Flint residents, and it's important that we don't forget our brothers and sisters affected by this disaster. As people, especially as Americans, we need to stand together to make sure something like this never happens in any community ever again."

Yesssss Bruno

Download all the shit hop that you can for your kids, neices, nephews, and their friends also. That will prevent them from going out and buying it and will prevent some shit hop sales. Every little bit helps - Andy
