When it comes to charitable celebs there's no one out there that helps people with a kinder heart than country singer Darius Rucker.

For 10 consecutive years now Rucker has been hosting Darius & Friends Benefit Concert to help raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Darius takes this cause very close to the heart:

As a parent, I can’t imagine the emotional toll hearing your child has cancer takes, not to mention the financial stress. The support families with a child facing life-threatening illness receive from St. Jude is just incredible. I’m proud to support St. Jude and I’m so grateful to all our friends who came out and donated their time to be on the show.

Every year the concert has been raising more and more money, and this year, they've reached an incredible milestone.

Over $2 million raised

Rucker's 10th annual benefit concert pushed the raised sum for St. Jude hospital over $2 million. This is an incredible achievement and it took the former Hootie and the Blowfish singer over 10 years to reach this point.

Darius feels incredibly grateful and happy for being able to help the doctors and most importantly children, as he shared on Twitter.

Such amazing achievement didn't go unnoticed by fans and gathered a massive reaction from people online.

 From the bottom of our hearts, thank you Darius for such incredible kindness!
