FOX4 Band of Angels

The Band of Angels is a partnership between FOX4 and Meyer Music. The goal is to collect music instruments and to help fund the purchase of musical instruments for use by children in need who want to study music. In many cases, a child’s family does not have the funds to obtain an instrument. Your contribution to The Band of Angels will help give the gift of music that will last a lifetime.

Band of Angels performance

Check out this amazing impromptu performance with Jada Kimbrough and Tony DeSare at the Band of Angels Scholarship Benefit.

Jada was one of the scholarship recipients and asked Tony if he would play her a song before he left. Above is a portion of that performance that is pure musical magic.
