Bruno Mars Donates $1 Million to Flint Water Crisis Victims

Bruno Mars has donated $1 million (£773,000), the proceeds of his MI concert on Saturday night (13Aug17) to the Flint water crisis fund. Mars made the announcement to a screaming crowd of fans at his sold out show Saturday night at the Palace of Auburn Hills in MI.

The Auburn Hills show was part of Mars' 24k Magic World Tour now making its way through the Midwest.

He said the funds will be dedicated to "our brothers and sisters in Flint".

As fans of the famous artist may already be aware, Bruno Mars is now busy with his 24K Magic World Tour.

Mars also issued a statement thanking the MI fans for supporting the cause.

Mars says in a statement that "as people, especially as Americans, we need to stand together to make sure something like this never happens in any community ever again".

Recent missile tests have put global attention on North Korea, a country vying to be the world's next nuclear power. President Trump over the past week has intensified his rhetoric against North Korea.

Hopefully, this will prove to be a reminder that the crisis in Flint is still ongoing and that many are still lacking safe, drinkable water. "We know Bruno Mars' $1 million gift will be transformative to the children and families of Flint".

As USA Today notes, the crisis in Flint, Mich. began in 2014 after the city switched water supplies, exposing residents to a high level of lead in the water.

"He understands the issues faced by Flint citizens, and we are touched by his concern and generosity".

Mars' album "24K Magic" was released in November 2016 and has sold over 2 million copies.

The four-time Grammy award winning artist isn't the only one to donate money to Flint.
