World-famous rapper Nas has revealed his plans to donate a percentage of the proceeds from an upcoming UK concert to the Amy Winehouse Foundation.
Amy’s family launched the Amy Winehouse Foundation on September 14th 2011, on what would have been her 28th birthday. The singer sadly died at her home in Camden, north London.
Amy struck up a close relationship with the rapper after meeting through their mutual friend, music producer Salaam Remi. They collaborated on 2008 track 'Like Smoke', which now appears on Winehouse's posthumously released album. Nas recently released a second collaboration with the late singer, 'Cherry Wine'.
Nas has promised that £1 from every ticket sold for an upcoming gig at London's 02 arena will go to the charity, according to the BBC. Tickets for the show on March 19, 2013 are currently on sale via Ticketmaster.
The late soul star's father Mitch told The Sun:
"Nas has announced that £1 from every ticket sold for his London concert taking place at the O2 on 19th March 2013 will be donated to the Amy Winehouse Foundation.
"Amy and Nas had a special relationship... The donation of £1 per ticket will help us continue our support of disadvantaged young people, and we at the Foundation very much appreciate this magnificent gesture."
Unfortunately, Amy isn't the only celebrity who's succumbed to an addiction...
