Bruno Mars has donated $1m in aid to Flint, Michigan, to help continue the relief work in the wake of the city’s water supply being contaminated with lead.
The singer, who has topped the US singles chart seven times, announced the donation on stage in Auburn Hills, halfway between Detroit and Flint. He later wrote in a statement:
“I’m very thankful to the Michigan audience for joining me in supporting this cause. 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.”
