T-Pain wants to change the world.
The rapper, known for his Auto-Tuned jams, will return to his hometown of Tallahassee to launch his "If I Could Change the World" foundation. The artist will host a star-studded benefit concert in partnership with Florida State University's Headliner Artist Series that will feature performances by some of music's hottest acts, including Chris Brown, DJ Khaled, Ace Hood, Young Cash, Tay Dizm and M Beezy. Expect lots of hits and surprises as T-Pain and friends take the stage at Tallahassee Leon County Civic Center on March 31, 2012.
After 2007's sold out success of the "Come to the Crib" benefit concert, it was only a matter of time before T-Pain was at it again. "I can't wait to hit the stage for 'Come to the Crib 2'" said T-Pain. "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." He continued, "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."
Tickets for "Come to the Crib 2" go on-sale tomorrow, Feb. 10, 2012 and are available at www.ticketmaster.com and the Tallahassee-Leon County Civic Center Box Office. Tickets are $12 for students and $35 for general public in advance. Please check www.t-pain.com for updates and detailed information.
The "Change the World" foundation has this credo: The foundation believes that many things are needed to help change the world as different problems affect different people. So, we pose the same question to everyone: if money and resources were no object, what do you think needs to be done to change the world and how would you do it? We encourage people to submit a video to the Foundation's website answering this question. The Foundation then selects an initiative and puts a massive campaign behind it to make this idea a reality.
