Singer 6LACK Is Using Success to Help Bring Clean Water to Needy Ugandans

The Atlanta singer 6LACK did his part so a village in Uganda has access to clean water.

He partnered with Drop4Drop, an organization that gives financial backing to “sustainable clean water solutions” for those countries in the greatest of need.

Plus, he teamed with RightWater, a company that packages “responsibly sourced water from natural springs” and puts them in recyclable aluminum cans instead of plastic bottles.

The “Pretty Little Fears” artists posted a message about his involvement with the two organizations on Thursday, and he revealed they all built a well for the village.

6LACK also said he’s thankful to be in a position to help others and reminded people that clean water is a scarcity for many.

“The best part about finding success, is having the ability to do things that seemed so farfetched as a kid,” he wrote. “It’s crazy to think that something as simple as fresh water, is still a problem for millions of people in the world, but it is.”

“We found an area in Uganda, in need of fresh water, built a water well for the community,” he added. “I appreciate music for changing my life, but I love it even more for being the vehicle to do more in the world. For my people ✊🏾 and for all people.”

6LACK also showed people in the village using the well with excited faces.

“I knew I loved you for a reason πŸ‘πŸ˜˜,” someone wrote on the 27-year-old’s Instagram page.

“Wow this is amazing. Inspiration,” wrote another.

“This kind of gesture is what makes you special,” a third person commented.

In 2018 6LACK also gave $10,000 to the “Music Cares Foundation” to assist other artists who are trying to make it in the music industry.
