Adam Lambert & his band support young music students through DonorsChoose.org :



On Tuesday, August 24th, Adam, Cam, Monte, Tommy, and Longineu made a special appearance at the office of DonorsChoose.org, an online charity that delivers materials to high-need classrooms, and Adam’s charity of choice! The band surprised the student jazz band of JHS 278 Marine Park and their teacher with much-needed school supplies.

The band played two songs for Adam and his bandmates. They had the chance to ask Adam about life on tour, what inspired him to sing, and what it was like to be on American Idol. The students were then given a chance to learn the opening to “If I Had You” and received autographed CDs from Adam.

Music teacher Candis Pohl said about meeting Adam and his band, “It was an unforgettable day for not only the students but myself as well. Being able to make this possible for the students was just incredible. I loved seeing those HUGE smiles you saw on the students’ faces yesterday.” Candis is especially thankful that Adam is supporting DonorsChoose.org, “an organization that truly gives those teachers in need what is necessary to make their classroom run to their greatest potential.”

I think it's awesome that Adam is helping keep music alive; especially since my son plays a few intruments. We borrow his bass clarinet & sax from the school and a friend. It would be wonderful if he could somehow get his own. This year he graduates from middle school and I hope that doesn't affect his joy of playing over the summer because he won't have an instrument; well at least til high school, I think. I'm not sure if he could borrow intruments there. If there's any way Adam could keep the smile on his face from the joy of playing or make it bigger; I sincerely ask for help.

This is one of the MANY things I love about Adam and his band! It's amazing to see how they take time out of their busy schedules and llves to bring help where it's needed and put smiles on so many faces. God bess you all!

MissGlamorize

Adam your amazing and not only on stage but off stage as well! Even though you have a super busy and successful career you still make time to reach out to children in need and that is sooo great! I completely agree with you that there should be way more music and art classes offered in schools...people need to have the option to experience the incredible feeling of being able to create their own music. Your a wonderful human being and a kick ass musician!!! =) You've inspired me soo much and i thank you for that! I l0ve you Adam!
<3 Sabrina

sconnie

That's so cool that the entire band went with him! I hadn't heard of DonorsChoose before Adam mentioned it. So many great projects to choose from and so appreciated by the teachers and students.

Rachel Lambert

Adam you're no longer just a great artist is a great human being, and you show that paying attention to those in need. We love you for you to be true.
Smiling LoveForever!!!

Adam, you are incredible, in every way. I love how you are helping others and spreading musical education and appreciation. This is just so great Smiling

CherryXMoon

Wauw, just wow.
This is so amazing. These projects are so great.
It's so sweet from him (and his band) to do this (:

deebert

Waaw! it's good.AMAZING!

jpolitte

Being a flute & piccolo player who was in Band & Orchestra, graduating in 1974 - I totally approve of what Adam is trying to do with DonorsChoose.org. There are so many who cannot afford to participate in music programs and with the schools cutting their arts & music budgets, every little bit helps expose these kids to the wonders they might not be able to experience without our support.

AdamLambertLova13

Wow. Adam is so amazing. I am so glad there is an Adam Lambert living in the same time I am. I would NOT want to miss this!!!!

GeralynK

I feel so proud to be a part of all this. I never would have known about this program if it weren't for Adam Lambert. He is so genuine .

ŠpeeLa Ella

great

AdamLambertFever1

Adam, I just want t let you know how incredibly amazing it is that you take time to go visit the people you have helped. I am lucky enough to have a decent enough music program at my school, and i am SOOOO thankful that you are letting other kids share the experience.
oh, and btw, I LOVE THE JACKET YOU WEAR IN THIS

Adam is doing great things by leading his fans to Donors Choose! I have donated several times and I have gifted a friend, for their birthday, a certificate so they could pick a project to donate to - (that's a great gift for someone who has everything already!). I really enjoyed hearing from the teachers and students who benefit! You go Adam!!!! Thank you!

Sprite01

Awhhh this is so cool. Smiling I love that Adam introduced me to this charity.

Thank-You Adam for the many ways of inspiration.

Adam is such a caring, kind and charitable person. Love seeing the joy on the kids' faces due to his generosity. He is working so hard, with very little break, but he still makes the time to do wonderful work for others.

JULIEB

If Adam went to Donors Choose in Manhattan, he then borough-hopped it to Brooklyn where the school is. Just think about all of the wisdom Adam and the band can impart to a band class!!! I know the teachers must have been ECSTATIC to see him!! I think DonorsChoose is one of THE best charities ever, and leave it to Adam to choose them as his favorite project!!

romeopeach

Ok seriously I can't stop bawling this is ADAMAZING!

Llamia

Adam is such a spiritual being... i just adore him both as an artist and as a human. he makes my day everytime. guess he makes me wanna listen to music again Laughing out loud
