Brown Headlines Haiti Gig
R&B singer CHRIS BROWN thrilled fans by headlining a Haiti benefit concert in his home state of Virginia on Saturday (15May10) to raise money for the earthquake-ravaged country.
The 21 year old joined a host of other stars including Keri Hilson, T-Pain, Juelz Santana and Mario at the Virginia Stand Up! A Call To Action gig at the Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond.
Brown delighted one lucky fan during the concert, pulling her onstage and serenading her with a rendition of his track Take You Down - but the singer admits the night was one for reflection.
In a statement, he said, "The images I see on television, both in my community and in Haiti, remind me that everyone has to do their part."
Money raised from the benefit concert will go towards the American Red Cross' Haiti relief effort to help survivors of the January (10) quake, as well as the Central Virginia Foodbank, which helps residents in Virginia.
