This weekend while on stage at his concert in Auburn Hills, Michigan, Mars announced that he was donating the money to help the city and families affected.
In a statement to the Rolling Stone, Mars said, “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.” (Source: Black America Web, Diannah Watson)
