BIG MACHINE RECORDS' RASCAL FLATTS announced a CMA FOUNDATION grant of $150,000 to LITTLE KIDS ROCK during a special visit YESTERDAY (2/18) to MIRAMONTE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL in LOS ANGELES.
”With all three of us having children ourselves, organizations like LITTLE KIDS ROCK really resonate with us,” said RASCAL FLATTS' JOE DON ROONEY. “To be able to give back to young music makers and to do it with our friends at the CMA FOUNDATION is really humbling and the best part of what we do.”
During the band’s visit they spent time with the children at the school, playing music and brought with them a surprise delivery of musical instruments. MIRAMONTE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL is one of nearly 1,300 public schools across the country supported by LITTLE KIDS ROCK, which donates teacher training, instruments, and educational resources to public school districts facing budget cuts and elimination of music programs.
