Rapper Jay-Z is joining together with NBA star LeBron James to donate over 150 musical instruments to a school in Arizona this week.

The pair will meet with over 200 students at Mesa Arts Academy in Mesa on Friday, February 13, to hand over the instruments – donated through a partnership with Coca Cola’s Sprite Green – and will also sign a donated piano which will permanently stay in the school’s auditorium.

“We are so delighted Sprite Green is donating instruments to the students of Mesa Arts Academy and the Boys & Girls Club,” said Ramon Elias, president of the Boys & Girls Clubs of the East Valley. “Our kids love to perform, and we know the instruments and musical equipment . . . will be a great way to motivate the kids to go to class and come to the Club after school.”

The stars are in Arizona to mark the upcoming NBA All-Star weekend and will hold their annual Two Kings Dinner later on Friday night.
