  • Jamie Foxx showed his support and dedication to Trayvon Martin’s family by hosting a star-studded charity event at his Los Angeles home this past weekend. The late teenager’s parents Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton were in attendence, along with a handful of Jamie’s famous friends including Tyrese, Larenz Tate, Marques Houston and Congresswoman Maxine Waters.

    The fundraiser helped raise money for the slain 17-year-old’s family and the Trayvon Martin Foundation. According to reports, Russell Simmons donated a six-figure check and activist Harry Belafonte delivered a speech.

    “A powerful gathering of “Influence” organized by @iamjamiefoxx this brother and friend raised a lot of money on behalf of the Trayvon Martin foundation,” Tyrese shared with his Instagram followers. “I showed up cause I’m uncomfortable with injustice…Jamie Foxx I’m very proud of you and HOW you’re using your influence.”

    Tank added, “We ALL showed up to support the Trayvon Martin Foundation event that @iamjamiefoxx put together! Let’s keep fighting and believing!. The kids are all that matter.”

    In July, following murder George Zimmerman’s not-guilty, the Oscar and Grammy Award winner offered Sybrina Fulton his lifelong support.

    1. According to Travons face book page , he sold the best weed there was . Right before his death he was kicked out of school , kicked off a bus for assaulting the bus driver , and kicked out of his house by his own mother . Quit making it like this kid is some angel . Chalkey white , the innocent black kids that get killed every day is national news , pick up a paper . So how come none of these famous black people ever help out these people ? Black lady was pushing her infant in a stroller in Chicago , gets robbed , the black gunman decides to shoot the infant point blank in the head . How come these so called black leaders do nothing for this poor lady ? All they care about is another race against black , and I do not get why , since there are alot more black people getting killed by blacks than by white people.

    2. Let’s see how long before Trayvon’s killer kills again.Even former co-workers thought he was unstable.He already attacked his wife and her family.I give him six months before he finds himself against an adult who has the means to shoot back

    3. Why don’t these celebrity black people ever hold a fundraiser or help out the families of the innocent black kids that are in the cross fire of black gang bangers . So many of these innocent kids are killed while playing in a park . But instead lets help out a family of a 17 year old thug , punk , bully , and drug dealer . Black people only care when a black person is killed by someone of another race , and that includes the famous black people . I am so sick of seeing the picture of travon at 12 years old . Lets see his 17 year old picture, that’s how old he was when he died . The reason they dont show it is because his neck and face tattoos did not make him look so innocent .
