Will.I.Am Helps Struggling Families
The Black Eyed Peas member gives some of his money to help struggling family on talk show...
Will.I.Am recently went to visit Oprah Winfreyon her popular talk show. The I Gotta Feelin' hit-maker amazed the audience and especially two struggling families who were on the verge of losing their homes, by revealing he'd paid off their mortgages.
When he realised just how much debt the family of eight and the single mother were in, due to the economic collapse, he offered to get out his cheque book and bless them with the money they needed to get out of the problem they were in.
Will told Oprah: “I don't dream of being mega, crazy rich; I just wanna be able to create, make music and help people. Doing this isn't gonna leave a dent in my house, but it could help somebody that really needs it. It's something that means a lot to me."
The two families had no idea they would be meeting a pop superstar on Oprah's stage, or that he'd be solving their immediate financial problems with a payment which amounted to more than $350,000 (£218,750).
The rapper/singer also launched his i.am home charity on the show. The fund will help struggling families.
