Some budding musicians in Michigan now have musical instruments to play courtesy of Barry Manilow.

The entertainer launched an instrument drive for Grand Rapids schools last week by offering two free tickets to his show for anyone who donated a new or slightly-used musical instrument. Manilow donated a piano of his own. At least 25 other instruments have come in so far. The Manilow Music Project also provides music scholarships to universities.
