PETERSBURG, Va. (AP) - Grammy-nominated singer Trey Songz delivered shoes and gift cards to dozens of needy children in his hometown of Petersburg.

The Progress-Index (https://bit.ly/1J6I408 ) reports that the entertainer surprised 68 children Wednesday with the early Christmas presents, including gift cards. His charity, Angels with Hearts Foundation, arranged the visit and gift-giving with the city, where he graduated from Petersburg High School.

Songz was known in Petersburg as Tremaine Neverson. During his visit with the children he reflected on his humble roots in the city known for its role in the Civil War. He said the children’s glee gave him “an extra sense of joy.”

Songz mother, April Tucker, recalled how she received help from charitable organizations during the holidays when she was raising Songz as a young mother.
