Guitar goddess Orianthi and American Idol finalist James Durbin played a concert earlier this month at Center Staging in Burbank, Calif., to benefit the non-profit group Rock School Scholarship Fund.
Rock School Scholarship Fund is a group that funds music lessons and provides instruments for kids 7-17 who want to attend any rock school nationwide, but whose parents don’t have the financial means.
The two played a diverse setlist, including Dio’s “Rainbow In The Dark,” and Aretha Franklin’s “Baby I Love You.”
“I had so much fun jamming out with the kids,” Orianthi said in a statement. “They are all so talented and sweet. I knew from when I was six that music would be my life and I used to spend most of my time in the music room. It’s sad to hear that music programs are often removed from public schools, so it meant a lot to be a part of the Rock School Scholarship Fund show.”
