KISS and Bret Michaels are among the artists helping the victims of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria.
KISS, along with the students at Kingwood High School in the Houston suburb of Kingwood, Texas, have launched a campaign to help replace the school’s instruments lost during Hurricane Harvey.
When KISS played nearby Sugar Land recently, more than 350 Kingwood students were given tickets to the show, and they came wearing KISS greasepaint. They took pictures with the band and then joined them on stage during the encore of “Rock and Roll All Nite.”
KISS is donating instruments to the school, and the Grammy Museum has pledged to help spread the word about the campaign.
Doc McGhee, the band’s manager, says, “KISS is honored to light the match to create awareness for the devastating losses suffered by Kingwood High School. Music must be kept alive, so we encourage all of the KISS Army to rise up and donate as they can to help get Kingwood High School back on their feet!”
Donations can be made through Humbleisd.net/donate2khs. Used and new instruments can be sent to: Summer Creek High School, 14000 Weckford Boulevard, Houston, Texas 77044
Bret Michaels performed at the Houston Stampede on Friday and made a donation of $10,000 to assist with Harvey Relief.
