Chris Brown is to headline and host a Haiti benefit concert next month.
Virginia Stand Up! will be held on May 15 in Richmond, Virginia.
Other performers will include Trey Songz, Keri Hilson, T-Pain, Mario and Ryan Leslie.
The 20-year-old RnB singer said in a statement he wanted to personally contribute to the Haitian relief effort and support an organisation that helps people in his home state. Proceeds will benefit the American Red Cross and the Central Virginia Foodbank.
Brown was sentenced last year to five years' probation and six months of community service after pleading guilty to felony assault. He was charged with an attack on his then-girlfriend Rihanna hours before the 2009 Grammys.
