Will.i.am to donate computers to pupils

Will.i.am

Will.i.am was deeply moved by the students he visited as part of the UK's Prince's Trust youth charity.

The Black Eyed Peas musician, producer and judge on Britain's version of The Voice made an appearance at a music project that took place in east London.

Will.i.am was happy to interact with the pupils.

"Will met around ten kids from the Prince's Trust programme," a source told British newspaper The Sun. "They performed songs they had been working on and he gave them loads of advice."

"He really put in a lot of effort, comparing them to rappers like Nas and Busta Rhymes and suggesting business ideas and ways to promote their music. Will is really into technology so he was also telling them they should all create apps to go along with their music."

Will.i.am also pledged to provide the pupils with £15,000 worth of laptops.

"As he was leaving he said he'd give them all a MacBook to help and asked the Prince's Trust organisers to sort it out and bill him for the Apple gear," the insider continued. "It was a great gesture."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

Your partner may be irresponsible with money and you're tired of paying the price for it. Keeping separate financial accounts may be the arrangement for the two of you. If your amour continues to accumulate debt without fear of the consequences, it may be time to part ways. You're a practical person who yearns for financial security. Putting money into a savings account gives you the freedom to travel, write and study. Don't be ashamed of your needs; they encompass your personality.More
