R&B singer/songwriter Ne-Yo went on tour recently not to entertain fans but to aid 4,000 children of the Foster Care and Group Home systems during the holiday season. Ne-Yo and his Compound Foundation “Giving Tour” made stops in Chicago, Boston, Washington D.C., Las Vegas and Orlando, providing Toys for Tots, books, clothing and meals.
“This Giving Tour is needed, and it is my pleasure and my responsibility to show our future leaders, dreams can come true and I am living, breathing proof of this,” said Ne-Yo. “No child should be deprived of the celebration that comes with the holiday season.”
The “One in a Million” singer received support from Adrienne Bailon (Actress/Singer), Angela Simmons, LaShawn Merritt (Olympic Gold Medalist), Lt. Col. Alex Cole (pilot for First Lady Michelle Obama) and Darren Henson (Professional Skateboarder) during the charity’s stops.
In related news, Ne-Yo is in the studio working on his fifth studio album, aptly titled “The Cracks In Mr. Perfect.”
