Justin Donates $200,000 to Music Organizations
Justin Timberlake is giving back – to his hometown.
The Grammy-winning superstar made two separate donations of $100,000 to the Memphis Rock 'n' Soul Museum and the Memphis Music Foundation last week in an effort to further music education.
"Music education and keeping the legacy of Memphis Music alive has always been important to me," Justin says. "That is why I will always continue to support my hometown the same way they have always supported me."

The 27-year-old, who was raised in the Memphis suburb of Millington, is currently back home filming his next big-screen venture The Open Road and presented the large checks to the organizations himself on Thursday.
"He has never stopped giving back to the community, to the local music industry, and to young people," Rock 'n' Soul executive director John Doyle says. "The museum is honored by his generosity, honored by his recognition of the museum's message and honored that he is from Memphis."
