Fire victims

Justice Stewart, 4, and 2-year-old Ju'shaun Watson.

R&B artist R. Kelly is donating $5,000 to help cover the funeral expenses for the two young brothers, 4-year-old Justice Stewart and 2-year-old Ju'shaun Watson, who were killed after being injured in an April 13 fire in Kankakee.
 
"It's part of the foundation's mission to help people in need, uplift their spirits and make the world a better place," Kelly's lawyer, Linda Mensch, said. "He was so heartbroken to hear about that fire."
 
Kelly made the donation after his tour manager, Kevin Gyles, who grew up in Kankakee, told him about the tragic fire.
 
"He just said to take care of the funeral costs," Gyles said. "He does all his charity work from the heart."
