It’s always wonderful to see people use their celebrity and talents for the greater good. To give a recent example, R&B singer Janelle Monae was enlisted to perform at a benefit raising money for residents affected by the water crisis in Flint Michigan over the weekend. Also in attendance in support of the cause were Hannibal Buress and Ava DuVernay, skipped out on the Academy Awards in support the cause. Blackout for Human Rights, an organization that addresses human rights violations, hosted the event, titled #JusticeForFlint on Sunday. The event was attended by 2,000 people and raised over 156,000. “Creed” director and founding member of the organization Ryan Coogler stated that more than 4,000 people sent in donations online as well. Hats off to Ms. Monae, Blackout for Human Rights and company for a job well done. R&B star Ciara got her groove on while in Nigeria recently. The singer performed a Nigerian dance with her crew along with Nigerian dance artist Kaffy. The singer was in the country to perform at Nigerian musician Dary’s Love Like A Movie Show at the Eko Hotel Convention Centre, where she also introduced Kaffy.
