The boxing gym offers free after-school boxing and educational mentoring for children.

The Like a Prayer singer and [2008 Rock and Roll] Hall of Famer will be providing funding for the new facility and too, will be buying new equipment for other programs under the umbrella of the facility’s curriculums.

Additionally, the Express Yourself pop star will be providing art and music supplies for the Detroit Achievement Academy, as well as providing assistance to a nonprofit (The Empowerment Plan)-an organization that employs homeless women who sew garments that are distributed to the homeless.

It was obvious to me that I had to get involved and be part of the solution to help Detroit recover.

She humbly added (about her hometown and the love of it): “A piece of my heart will always be in Detroit, and I’m humbled to be able to give back to my community,” she said.

As well, she attended the Madonnas_Instagram_ofUM University of Michigan on a dance scholarship before she took off the New York City to take her bite out of the big apple and since then; (as you can see) the rest is [still making] history.
