Tyler Perry’s new movie “Good Deeds” came in at number two over the weekend grossing $16 million dollars on the big screen!
In addition to that, the always charitable Perry did another good deed off screen. The Atlanta filmmaker blessed a Chicago pastor who had been living on an icy rooftop of an abandoned motel for three months in order to draw attention to gun violence. The pastor presided over 10 funerals last year for slain young men, all of them younger than 25.
The 43-year-old Rev. Corey Brooks, who is also the father for four, ended his 94-day vigil on Friday after a $100,000 donation from Tyler Perry!
Perry’s donation took Pastor Brooks over his goal to raise $450,000 to buy and demolish the dilapidated Super Motel on Chicago’s South Side, which had become a haven for prostitution and drug dealing. Now, Brooks is seeking to raise money to build a community center on the site.
