KISS – the rockers who blasted their way to fame in the 1970s – have shown their charitable side by donating musical instruments to a school in Oklahoma.
The band joined with the Mr Holland’s Opus Foundation to give 40 instruments to Wilson Middle School in Tulsa on Wednesday. The donation was filmed as part of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition for an episode in which the band helps rebuild the home of a local music teacher.
The Mr Holland’s Opus Foundation donates new and refurbished musical instruments to underserved schools, community music programs and individual students nationwide, in an effort to give youngsters the many benefits of music education, help them to be better students and inspire creativity and expression through playing music.
