No one can say that Nelly and Monica don't care about their community. The two artists are scheduled to perform at a concert at The Pageant, a venue in Nelly's hometown of St. Louis, with proceeds going to a college scholarship fund.


The show, according to, will take place on Saturday, August 20 at 7:00pm. "Just as I reached my goals, I want to help them reach theirs. I am happy to help those who are trying to help themselves," said Nelly.


The concert will benefit the Vatterott College Scholarship Fund, established in 2010 for high achieving students who are not able to afford college on their own.
