Adam Lambert Sings With Kids & Chats with ONTD_AI


DonorsChoose.org supporter Adam Lambert
, of “American Idol” fame, surprised music students at Belvedere Middle School in Los Angeles with a special visit to their classroom, bearing supplies funded through his DonorsChoose.org challenge.  Adam unpacked composition books with the students, who are learning to compose their own music, and even performed a live acoustic set for the class (video below). The students then presented Adam with their own surprise by performing one of his American Idol songs using instruments that were also funded previously through DonorsChoose.org. Read more about the event at the Los Angeles Times website.

Belvedere Middle School is a high-poverty public school whose budding music students have benefited greatly from DonorsChoose.org’s generous donors.  This past fall, Adam and DonorsChoose.org launched a challenge to Adam’s fan groups to support students and teachers across the country by funding critical music and arts supplies for high-need public school classrooms.  Thanks to the enthusiasm of Adam’s fans, to date more than 2,300 fans have contributed over $290,000 directly to project requests, subsequently benefiting 215,000 students.

Members of one of Adam’s fan groups[info]ontd_ai , which raised the most during the challenge, received a special thank-you of their own, as Adam joined them after the school visit for a live online video chat. Adam answered tons of questions submitted by his fans and thanked them personally for their overwhelming efforts to help students and teachers in need across the country.

Currently ontd_ai's giving page for DonorsChoose.org has 979 donors & has donated $97,359..holy shit, guys.
