KISS Treats Kingwood High School Students, Raises Funds

And just like that, KISS has given the world another great reason to love them. The legendary rock stars heard about the devastation at Kingwood High School, where many students lost their instruments to Harvey flooding. During their recent concert in Sugarland, students got to join KISS in front of the stage and down the aisles as the band performed the song, I Wanna Rock And Roll All Night. The feature was designed to help raise funds to replace the kid’s instruments and get the school’s music program back on its feet.

Floodwaters from Harvey swept through the entire first floor of Kingwood High School, even flooding several feet of the second story. Musical items lost include the kid’s instruments, carrying cases, sheet music, music stands, books, CDs and DVDs, sound equipment, and recording technology.

“Part of being as successful as we are is really about giving back,” said KISS member Paul Stanley. “So here we are urging everybody and doing our part to make sure music and musical instruments are in the Houston schools and young people have them to play.”

In fact, Kingwood High School was so extremely damaged, that it will not re-open for an entire year. Meanwhile, students are attending Summer Creek High School.

“This is not about us,” Gene Simmons told KHOU 11 News. “This is about raising funds and making sure the kids here don’t get too depressed about everything. We’re here to make everyone happy and that’s what this is about.”§ion=home
