On Saturday, September 29th, Black Eyed Peas' Taboo will bring his high energy performance to Facebook headquarters in Menlo Park, CA to support music education at the inaugural Rock Their World Celebration, a fundraiser and celebration of national nonprofit Little Kids Rock's decade of service, restoring and revitalizing music education for disadvantaged public schools nationwide.

He’ll join “Red Rocker” Sammy Hagar, and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame musician and Adopt the Arts founder Matt Sorum (Guns N’ Roses, Velvet Revolver), as well as local Little Kids Rock students at this musical fundraiser.

More information on this event and Taboo’s participation is available here.

Taboo has been a vocal supporter of Little Kids Rock, a leading nonprofit provider of free musical instruments and music classes to underprivileged children. Started by a single Bay Area teacher in California in 2002, it has since grown to attract the support of over 1,200 public school teachers who have proactively banded together to provide free, Little Kids Rock music classes to children in their schools. Over 200,000 public school children in 24 cities in 12 states have since benefited from the program.

Taboo first got involved with Little Kids Rock more than a year ago when he surprised students at their end-of-year concert by hopping onstage with them to perform the Black Eyed Peas hit, I Gotta Feelin’. “I am all about the youth,” Taboo said. “I am all about the next big thing. Our kids are the next big thing and I will do anything I can do to support them. That’s why I support Little Kids Rock.” The kids inspired him so much that he brought them to a recording studio to record an original song with him.

“Our students are so fortunate to have the support of Taboo, who is an inspiring performer, but also an engaged and committed philanthropist,” says Little Kids Rock Founder and Executive Director, David Wish.
