A&M RECORDS co-founder and musician HERB ALPERT's foundation, co-founded with his wife LANI HALL, "is making a $10.1-million donation to LOS ANGELES CITY COLLEGE that will provide all music majors at the school with a tuition-free education," reports THE LOS ANGELES TIMES.
“LACC is a gem of an institution,” ALPERT told the paper. “The biggest motivation was helping kids who don’t have the financial energy to go to a major college. At LACC, they’ve nurtured thousands of dedicated students every year. My brother went there. My ex-partner [record producer] LOU ADLER went there. I’ve visited the school. It’s alive. It’s kickin’.”
