Lucky enough for Booker T. Washington High School student Nzinga Hendricks, and her fellow band members.
Hendricks was visiting The RCMS minutes before Perry’s appearance to discuss its efforts to replace uniforms that had been damaged over the summer. They had raised $1500 in three days, she told Ryan, Crash, Mo and Kendra. And after hearing about their efforts in the green room, Perry offered to take care of the entire tab.
“Now I’m broke, y’all leave me alone!” Perry declared in his signature Madea voice.
And appropriately so, as he was at V-103 to invite listeners to the last DVD taping of his stage play “Tyler Perry’s Madea And The Neighbors From Hell” tonight at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre, which stars the delightfully unabashed Madea character he’s portrayed since the launch of his multimedia dominance.
But before he left, he took time during this rare (and often hilarious) radio appearance to address the news of the near-nervous breakdown of his close friend, Oprah Winfrey; what moves him to such frequent acts of philanthropy, like this morning’s; and why he isn’t a father – yet.
