Chris Brown Takes The Stage At His Symphonic Love Foundation Launch

The foundation creates arts programs for youth while encouraging public service, respect, and kindness. It also provides grants in two areas: Art and Love.

In 2012, Chris gave over $200,000 in grants to organizations including AIDS Project Los Angeles and the Jenesse Center. Take a look at what he had to say in a statement below:

“It definitely has been a labor of love. That what it’s all about for me—art and love. Art influences every aspect of my life completely. It helps me to be myself. Focusing on positivity and love helps you have respect for yourself and others. It’s what I strive for, so I hope this foundation and the website encourages everyone to express themselves creatively and be who they want to be.”

The singer is also working alongside his aunt and mother on an arts and recreation center in his hometown of Tappahannock, Virgina.

Chris is nominated for two American Music Awards this year for Favorite Soul/R&B Male Artist and Favorite Soul/R&B Album. His fifth studio album Fortune, which was released on July 3rd, has sold a total of 303,600 copies in the United States as of September.

Pop culture extraordinaire, Mickey Mouse lover, Britney Spears fanatic, and occasional manipulative bitch from Louisiana. As a kid, I used to write short stories and draw pictures to go along with them, they were my escapes. I began blogging in 2005 on Myspace just to speak on certain celebrities and share my thoughts and in late 2008 early 2009 I started doing my own weekly BlogTV show called EnterSHADEment Talk, which ended in late 2012. Between the show, I was appearing on various podcasts and writing for the now defunct DefGlam. I just want to inform people about their favorite celebrities or actors, not for fame, not for attention, but because I generally love it. I enjoy all music but mostly pop. I'm into fashion. Rihanna is that bitch and MGK is underrated.
