Rocker Lenny Kravitz has given an electric guitar worth $5,000 (£2,600) to Brazilian president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva.
Kravitz gave the guitar to President Lula da Silva in person
Kravitz donated the guitar to raise funds for the president's campaign to wipe out hunger in the country by 2006.
It will be auctioned on the internet and proceeds will go towards improving water supplies in north-east Brazil.
Kravitz is currently on tour, playing shows in Mexico, Chile and Argentina as well as Brazil.
The 40-year-old, best known for the hits Fly Away and Are You Gonna Go My Way, has also toured North America, and will be playing London's Hammersmith Apollo in July.
His seventh album Baptism was released in 2004.
The Brazilian president, known as Lula, has gained international recognition for his Zero Hunger programme, which aims to tackle the poverty affecting nearly a third of Brazil's 180m population.
