Justin Timberlake


Good hearted Pop star Justin Timberlake is teaming up girlfriend Jessica Biel's father to support underprivileged children. Philanthropist Jon Biel showed the singer a newspaper article about New York City’s Ten O’Clock Classics, a group of classical musicians who offer instruments and lessons to schoolkids, and convinced him to get involved and help the great charity out. Timberlake has agreed to autograph a baby grand piano to be auctioned off, with the proceeds going to the non-profit organization. Founder Ronen Segev says, "He cares about music education and wants to make sure these kids can continue to have music lessons. They listen to his music and they connect with him. He is the inspiration for their love of music." Singer Billy Joel has also donated a signed piano to the great cause.
