Chris Brown's been on trash-pickup duty. Now he's on to image cleanup.

The "Run It" singer has agreed to headline an all-star benefit concert next month.

Dubbed Virginia Stand Up! A Call to Action, the event will take place May 15 at Virginia Commonwealth University and feature performances by T-Pain, Keri Hilson, Trey Songz and Ryan Leslie. Brown will host and close out the show. More artists are expected to be added to the bill in the coming days.

Proceeds will go toward the Red Cross' Haitian relief efforts and the Central Virginia Food Bank.

"I wanted to find a way to contribute personally to the ongoing Haitian relief effort and also support an organization that helps people in need in my home state," says Brown. "Everyone has to do their part."
