Rapper Trey Songz brought some Christmas cheer back to his hometown on Wednesday, and distributed gifts to over 68 children, even if he was a little bashful about it.

The 31-year-old Panty Droppa hitmaker is originally from Petersburg, Virginia.

Through his charity, the Angels with Hearts Foundation, the recording artist showed up at the local public library with shoes and toy store gift cards to distribute.

In a post event interview, he told the Progress-Index how much the whole event meant to him personally, though he did modestly hide his face several times during the exchange.

‘I come from here. I walked these same school hallways, I lived on these same streets, I went in these same stores, I played in the same parks, I’ve had the same experiences they’ve had so for them to see me to be successful and take care of family and take care of my community and give back they see that once you achieve success you don’t have to keep it all for yourself.’
