American rappers Pharoahe Monch and Jean Grae are pitching in to help raise funds for flood victims in Australia by performing two benefit shows in the country.
Thousands of residents in Queensland have been left homeless after the country was hit by some of its worst floods in history and at least 19 lives have been lost in the disaster.
The two hip-hop stars have witnessed the devastation first-hand while on tour Down Under and they have decided to chip in to boost relief efforts.
Monch and Grae hit the stage on Friday night (14Jan11) to perform at the Corner Hotel in Queensland, and they will play another charity gig on 19 January (11), with all proceeds donated to the local government's Disaster Relief Appeal.
