In conjunction with the release of the BRIAN WILSON biopic, "Love & Mercy," the BEACH BOYS co-founder has re-recorded the film’s title track with local public school students who benefit from LITTLE KIDS ROCK's free Modern Band music program. See the video embedded below.
LITTLE KIDS ROCK is a leading nonprofit provider of popular music instruction, instruments and curricula to nearly 1,300 public schools in 30 cities, having served more than 400,000 children since 2002 with weekly music lessons rooted in popular music genres like rock, funk, pop, reggae and others.
“As the movie 'Love & Mercy' shows, music had a transformational impact on my life,” WILSON said. “It is such an honor and a pleasure to work with LITTLE KIDS ROCK again and help them bring the lifelong gift of music into the lives of children in schools who may otherwise not have access.”
WILSON performed at LITTLE KIDS ROCK’s annual benefit event in NEW YORK in 2013.
