The Walker Ford Community Center in Tallahassee re-opened Friday night (Dec. 7) thanks to the $20,000 raised by a benefit concert featuring hometown hero T-Pain.

According to the Tallahassee Democrat, the center underwent $20,000 of renovations including a newly refurnished teen room featuring two 50-inch high-definition flat screen TVs, Nintendo Wii and Xbox 360 video-game systems, pool tables and other game tables, a surround-sound stereo system, four computers and new books.

T-Pain, born Faheem Najm, spent a lot of time at the center as a teen growing up in the area.

"We could have never had the money to do this," said Ya Shica D'Angelo, assistant supervisor of the center. "This gives the teenagers a place of their own."

"I love it," said Tiffany, a senior at Leon High School and vice president of the Walker Ford Student Council. "The couches are so cool, the TVs and all the games - it's wonderful."

T-Pain was not in attendance for the re-opening of the center.
