Star-Studded Night at The Whiting for #JusticeForFlint [VIDEOS]
Creed director Ryan Coogler, director Ava DuVernay, comedian Hannibal Buress, Grey’s Anatomy actor Jesse Williams and others came to Flint last night to raise money for the water crisis.
Hannibal Buress, known for his roles in 30 Rock, The Mindy Project, Daddy’s Home and Comedy Central’s Broad City was up first last night at The Whiting.
Our Flint hero, Dr. Mona Hanna-Atisha, spoke to the audience about the water crisis.
Flint native Jon Connor, currently signed to Dr. Dre’s Aftermath Entertainment, and who’s mother lives in one of the affected zip codes, performed.
Neo-soul artist Janelle Monae performed for Flint last night as well.
And finally, the big “surprise” artist to end the show…STEVIE. FREAKING. WONDER.
Unbelievable. The event raised over $130,000 for the people of Flint. Thank you!
