109068198 Usher Donates Gadhafi Money

Usher is the latest artist to donate his pay to charity from a private performance at a party linked to Gadhafi’s family.  He joins other artist who performed at this private party like Beyonce, Mariah Carey and Nelly Furtado.

“I am sincerely troubled to learn about the circumstances surrounding the Nikki Beach St. Barts event that took place on New Year’s Eve 2009,” the singer told The Associated Press. “I will be donating all of my personal proceeds from that event to various human rights organizations.”

The news of Usher’s donation comes on the heels of his peers Beyonce, Mariah Carey and Nelly Furtado opting to give their earnings to charity or stating they have already done so.

Usher is the only artists that didn’t actually perform but he was paid an appearance fee to attend the private concert featuring Beyonce in 2009 for Gadhafi, whose country, Libya, is openly revolting against him and who faces an investigation for possible war crimes.
