Hoping that future aspiring singers get the same opportunities he did, Justin Timberlake last week split $200,000 between two music organizations in his home town of Memphis, Tennessee. $100,000 went to the Memphis Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum and the same figure again to the Memphis Music Foundation. From the article,
“Speaking about the donations, Justin said: ‘Music education and keeping the legacy of Memphis music alive has always been important to me. That is why I will always continue to support my hometown the same way they have always supported me.’”
Timberlake is currently in Memphis filming the independent film The Open Road — you can also see him make a cameo in the new Mike Meyers comedy The Love Guru.
