If you’re not already familiar with my brother, will.i.am’s foundation, I.Am.Angel, please get familiar. If anyone has a big heart, it’s that dude. He built the program from the ground up to help underserved kids build a better future through education and scholarships.
Every year, the foundation organizes an event that’s part conference and part benefit concert called TRANS4M. So when he asked Taboo and I to join his TRANS4M benefit concert I hopped right on the opportunity without ANY hesitation. I mean you do anything for your family, so it wasn’t even a question. Plus, I love helping others since I know the struggle of growing up with not much of anything.
Anyway, it was a lot of fun. Mad people came out and supported the foundation and we raised a lot of money. From what Will was saying, I think it ended up being about $3.3 million. And we performed among good company: Alicia Keys, Ludacris, Estelle and Bobby Brown among others. It was just cool to be with my BEP family, singing, doing what we love and for a good cause.
