MEMPHIS-born JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE has made two separate donations of $100,000 each to the MEMPHIS ROCK ‘N’ SOUL MUSEUM and to the MEMPHIS MUSIC FOUNDATION. TIMBERLAKE, who was in town filming the independent movie "The Open Road," previously made a donation to the E.E. JETER ELEMENTARY SCHOOL, which he attended, to support music education.
"Music education and keeping the legacy of MEMPHIS music alive has always been important to me," he said. "That is why I will always continue to support my home town the same way they have always supported me."
