Much can be said about beleaguered R&B crooner Chris Brown, but what cannot be said is that Breezy doesn’t love the kids.
While on break from the Australian leg of his F.A.M.E. promotional tour, the controversial singer took time out of his busy schedule to visit with children who are enrolled in the Australian chapter of the Best Buddies program– a globally recognized not-for-profit that specializes in assisting children and adults with intellectual disabilities. The big-hearted singer has worked with Best Buddies stateside and continued his good work while Down Under.
The charity’s executive director Mark Trevaskis spoke with The Daily Telegraph, expressing joy that Brown joined up with the organization to take the youngsters of Best Buddies out on the town. “He has been involved with the charity in the U.S. and we were thrilled that he has taken some time out of his schedule to come and be with us and play a couple of games of ten-pin,” said Mr. Trevaskis. No telling what Breezy’s point total was in bowling that night, but he certainly scored big with the Best Buddies of Australia, belying much of the controversy and hot-headed image that continues to follow and plague him.
Chris Brown’s tour will resume April 29 as one of the last two dates of the tour. Breezy will wrap up this current leg of the tour on May 3. Fans who attend the shows may be in for a treat. Rumor has it that teen heartthrob Justin Bieber may join Brown this week onstage.
