Bruno Mars to donate $1 million towards Flint water crisis relief

Grammy-Award Winning Artist Bruno Mars Announces $1 Million In Aid For Flint During Show

Bruno Mars' performance at the Palace of Auburn Hills, Mich. on August 12 was the ultimate showstopper as the singer surprised the crowd by announcing a $1 million donation to aid victims of the Flint water crisis.

The donation is being made by Bruno Mars and tour promoter Live Nation via funds from the concert, according to a Hollywood Reporter story. "As people, especially as Americans, we need to stand together to make sure something like this never happens in any community ever again". Due to insufficient treatment an estimated more than 100,000 residents were exposed to tainted water with high levels of lead, which as been linked to an increase in Legionnaires' disease and other health issues.

ABC News reports that the hefty donation will come out of revenue from Saturday's sold-out show at The Palace of Auburn Hills as part of Mars' 24K Magic World Tour.

Mars is now on a sold out world tour in support of his latest album, 24K Magic.

Flint has been dealing with lead issues in their water since a controversial 2014 switch from the Detroit water system.
