Chris Brown has launched a charity organization called the Symphonic Love Foundation that will financially support arts programs and other organizations that provide education on domestic abuse, dating violence and HIV/AIDS.
"Chris wanted to focus on supporting arts programs because art has been such an integral part of his life," a source revealed to Hollywood Life. "It's been a way for him to express who he is ever since he was a young child. He's been quietly painting for years and sees it as a positive outlet for low income children."
In addition to lending a hand to arts and education programs, Symphonic Love will create its own youth programs that encourage "every day public service, respect and kindness" and host spaces for them to showcase their work.
