Chris Brown will be hosting and playing a benefit show this May. The singer, who recently rallied to get young people to fill out their 2010 census, will be joined by Keri Hilson, Trey Songz, T-Pain, Ryan Leslie, Mario and Juelz Santana for the show set to take place on May 15 in Richmond, Virginia. The show, called Virginia Stand Up! A Call to Action, will help benefit the Greater Richmond Chapter of the American Red Cross for their efforts in Haiti, as well as the Central Virginia Food Bank, which provides food for those in need. Earlier this year, Brown performed on BET’s “SOS: Help for Haiti” telethon. Tickets went on sale Monday (April 19) for the show at Virginia Commonwealth University’s Siegel Center. Not only will proceeds help the organizations involved, but fans who attend the show can bring non-perishable food items for donation. “I wanted to find a way to contribute personally to the ongoing Haitian relief effort and also support an organization that helps people in need in my home state,” Brown said in a statement. “The images I see on television, both in my community and in Haiti, remind me that everyone has to do their part.” Additional performers will be announced in the weeks leading up to the show.
Tapping the star power of singer Chris Brown, the city of Richmond urged some of its younger residents yesterday to be counted in the 2010 census. Hoping to boost response rates that are lagging behind state and national averages, the city organized two rallies one at Virginia Union University on North Side and another at Southside Plaza to promote participation, as required by federal law. At an early-afternoon rally at VUU, Brown “really energized the crowd and did exactly what we wanted him to do” emphasize the importance of the census to a younger generation said Jeffrey Bourne, deputy chief of staff to Mayor Dwight C. Jones. Bourne estimated the crowd at 250 to 300 people and said Brown had rearranged his schedule to make himself available at no cost to the city.
