KISS saw the reports of the devastation from Hurricane Harvey and was motivated to do something to help the Houston area community. Word came about Kingwood High School’s flooding that destroyed all of the band and orchestra instruments as well as shut down the school for this school year and KISS decided they would focus on the school and launch a campaign to help replace their instruments.
Over 350 Kingwood students were bussed in for the show complete with KISS make-up. KISS met with the students and took pictures and invited them to perform with them during the classic rock anthem Rock and Roll All Night. Students dressed in their high school uniforms and colors flooded the aisles and front of the stage to dance to the song amidst the shower of confetti. Paul Stanley then informed the crowd about the launch of the fundraising campaign.
KISS committed to donating a number of instruments to the school and to help spread the word to get Kingwood High School back on their feet and the Grammy Museum pledged to help spread the word about the campaign.
“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!” said KISS Manager Doc McGhee.
