"Ongoing challenges remain years later for Flint residents, and it's important that we don't forget our brothers and sisters affected by this disaster".

"I'm very thankful to the MI audience for joining me in supporting this cause", Mars said in a statement.

Bruno Mars is donating one million dollars from a concert in MI to help those affected by the Flint water crisis. "We know Bruno Mars' $1 million gift will be transformative to the children and families of Flint".

As he closed his main set with "Just The Way You Are" at the Palace of Auburn Hills, Mars told the crowd that he was donating $1 million to "our brothers and sisters in Flint, Michigan" to provide aid for the continuing wake of the city's water crisis.

The continuing crisis has led to myriad public health issues for the city of almost 100,000, including unsafe exposure to lead, especially among children.

But despite his busy schedule, the celebrity is still finding time to think about those in need and also do something about it! Authorities were slow to alert the public of the water safety issues, despite repeated complaints from residents.

In 2014 the city-which according to the U.S. Census Bureau is 56.6% African-American with a median household income of $24, 862-switched water sources with a new pipeline connecting it to Flint River.

The decision resulted in a host of criminal charges against state health officials as well as an investigation into Michigan Senator Rick Snyder, responsible for the appointment of the emergency manager.
