Singer Bruno Mars has pledged $1 million to the Community Foundation of Greater Flint to aid relief efforts for the Flint water crisis.

"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", Mars said in a statement.

The That's What I Like artist, who was born and raised in Hawaii, performed during his sold-out 24K Magic World Tour, which kicked off this past March in Belgium, before making its way stateside last month. His album, "24K Magic", recently achieved double platinum status, meaning that it has sold two million copies.

The Community Foundation of Greater Flint is an organization addressing the issues brought on after the city switched water sources and failed to treat the water to prevent corrosion, which allowed risky amounts of lead from old pipes to leach into the water. The new system did not take corrosion-reducing measures, so the old pipes leeched lead into the drinking water.
