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.
