LOUISVILLE, KY. (AP) - Singer Barry Manilow has donated a new Yamaha piano to launch a music instrument drive at Kentucky’s largest school district and is offering free tickets to an upcoming performance to anyone else who makes a donation.

The instruments will go to help students at Jefferson County Public Schools in Louisville.

WHAS-TV (https://bit.ly/LHPZE1) reports that those who donate a new or gently used musical instrument will receive two free tickets for Manilow’s July 27 concert in Louisville. Donated instruments can be dropped off at The Louisville Palace through July 27.

Manilow says he is “thrilled to be able to help bring the gift of music to these kids.”

The Manilow Music Project provides musical instruments to high schools and middle schools and music scholarships to universities.
