At a sold-out show at the Palace of Auburn Hills, five-time grammy award winning artist Bruno Mars made the announcement that he's donating $1 million to relief efforts in Flint, Michigan.

The pop crooner announced to the crowd who packed the Palace of Auburn Hills for his 24K Magic World Tour on Saturday night that he and the show's promoter, Live Nation, would be redirecting funds from the MI show to charity.

In a statement posted on Facebook, Isaiah M. Oliver, the president and CEO of the foundation, wrote, "With a grateful heart, the Community Foundation of Greater Flint is honored to accept this inspiring donation". "As people, especially as Americans, we need to stand together to make sure something like this never happens in any community ever again".

Bruno and his tour promoter Live Nation, redirected funds from his show to the Community Foundation of Greater Flint - an organization whose main focus is helping those affected by the water crisis.

The Hawaiian-born Mars is now on his 24K Magic World Tour.
