Exclusive: T-Pain Launches Charity with Hometown Benefit Concert
To celebrate the launch of his new charity, "If I Could Change The World," T-Pain will return to his hometown of Tallahassee, FL. for a huge benefit concert. "Come To The Crib 2," in partnership with Florida State University's Headliner Artist Series, will take place on March 31 and include performances by heavy-hitters like Chris Brown, DJ Khaled, Ace Hood, Young Cash, and more.
"If I Could Change The World" will focus on a different initiative each year, with fans choosing which charity will benefit from the "World" foundation. The singer/songwriter encourages fans to visit the foundation's website and vote for the charity of their choosing. "Hopefully my foundation inspires today's youth to get involved with our communities, which is why I wanted to give my fans the control to choose this year's charity. So go to www.changeworlds.org to help us select this year's initiative."
"Crib 2" follows T-Pain's successful "Come To The Crib" benefit concert in 2007, and this time around, he's expressed delight on organizing a bigger and better event. "I can't wait to hit the stage for 'Come to the Crib 2'" he revealed. "Our fans and their support made it possible for us to build a new entertainment room for the kids at the Walker Ford Center and I hope this year will be even bigger."
T-Pain has been busy with TV appearances on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" and "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" behind his recent fourth album, "rEVOLVEr." As the stylized name suggests, the record finds the "Bartender" singer evolving from the auto-tuned crooner that's defined the Florida native's sound. T-Pain is also set for his February co-headlining "Snowstorm" tour with Gym Class Heroes.
Tickets for "Come To The Crib 2" go on-sale February 10 and fans can check T-Pain's official site for updates and details.
