*Just because rappers and producers create music that is worldly and quite demeaning, doesn’t mean their good deeds and services won’t go unrecognized.
The United Methodist Childern’s Home honored Jonathan “Lil Jon” Smith for raising $80,000 through his efforts on “Celebrity Apprentice.”
The money will go toward an endowment fund to help educational opportunities and refurbish buildings at the 99-acre campus in Atlanta.
Smith’s initial goal was to raise $100,000 but was happy to see that his appearance on the show brought more awareness to the cause.
Also some other great things are flourishing from the show. He got back with his former “Celebrity Apprentice” team members Meat Loaf, country John Rich and Mark McGrath of Sugar Ray to for Team Backbone and record a benefit single called “Stand in the Storm.”
The motivational rock song begins with a two-minute symphonic intro, then morphs into a shameless guitar anthem, with Lil Jon supplying his signature ad libs and a hilarious verse, announcing that he’s “sick like a meth addict.”
All the proceeds will go to each individual’s choice charity.
