Will.i.am has donated his paycheck from The Voice UK to the Prince's Trust - parting ways with a staggering £500,000.
The Black Eyed Peas hitmaker was hired for the BBC talent show for the lion's share of the £1 million budget for on-screen talent, pocketing considerably more than colleagues Jessie J, Sir Tom Jones, Danny O'Donaghue, Reggie Yates and Holly Willoughby.
His generosity will help deprived kids get training and start up businesses, according to The Sun.
He said: "The people of the UK welcomed me into their homes every week and I wanted to give everything back.
"I called my manager and said, 'What can I do with the money that I'm getting for The Voice? I don't need it.' It's the least I could do - the show changed my life." N'awww.
Will met with Prince Charles yesterday to discuss how his own charity - the i.am.angel Foundation - can support the Trust's work.
He explained: "My donation to the Trust will help these young people build skills that are vital in today's and tomorrow's job market, including technology and computer knowledge.
"I grew up in east Los Angeles, one of the most under-served and tough neighbourhoods in America. My family made sure I understood that getting a good education and hard work were key to turning my dreams into reality and beating the odds that come with growing up in a disadvantaged situation."
Martina Milburn, the Trust's chief executive, said of the gesture: "Will.i.am is an inspiring character - we're excited about his vision of helping the most disadvantaged to improve their computer skills and we're incredibly grateful for the donation."
The Voice UK drew to a close earlier this month. Will's last remaining act, Tyler James, beat winner Leanne Mitchell in the charts when he scraped into the Top 40 with 'Higher Love'.
