You know who’s the real MVP? Tyrese is the real MVP.

The R&B singer and actor has done a charitable deed and invested $50,000 into the education of Compton teen Lorenzo Murphy, also known as Zo The Motivator, which will be used to send him to Atlanta’s Morehouse College.

Zo took to Instagram Wednesday (August 12) to tell everyone because of the BlackRose singer he’ll now be a proud Morehouse man.

Tyrese was more than happy to send the 21-year-old to school and offered Zo a bit of advice.

And while Tyrese definitely deserves a soul clap for his awesome contribution, he isn’t the only artist to do so.

In 2009, Black Eyed Peas frontman Will. I. Am sent four teens, Jaiquann, Elijah, Darien and Barien all to four-year accredited schools through his i.amscholorship foundation which covered their room, board, tuition and books.

Barien is in pharmacy school and will graduate in 2016, Elijah graduated from Indiana University of Pennsylvania in 2014. Jaiquan earned his degree in education from Cabrini College and is now a teacher and Darien was finishing up his degree at Morgan State.

So great to see artist use their wealth to help others. Clap! Clap! Bravo to Tyrese and congrats Zo!
