New York, NY (Top40 Charts) The KIDZ BOP Kids, Billboard Magazine's #1 kids artist for eight consecutive years, joined MusiCounts for a celebration of the MusiCounts Band Aid Program at Immaculate Conception Catholic School in Toronto. KIDZ BOP surprised school students with $10,000 worth of new instruments for the school's music program, followed by a special performance and Q&A as part of the festivities. The MusiCounts Band Aid Program instrument grant was made possible by The Acapella Foundation, a Toronto-based organization that supports programs and charities in Toronto whose goals are to improve quality of life for children.

"With these new instruments granted to Immaculate Conception we know generations of students will experience the benefits of music. Thank you to The Acapella Foundation for its support of the MusiCounts Band Aid Program," said Kristy Fletcher, Executive Director, MusiCounts. "And thank you to KIDZ BOP for creating a very memorable surprise for students with an inspiring performance."

Before kicking off their KIDZ BOP LIVE 2018 tour on Friday, the KIDZBOP Kids - Freddy, Julianna, Isaiah and Olivia - took to the stage to perform songs from their new album KIDZ BOP 2018 including "Havana", "Perfect", and a mashup of "Stay" and "Issues", then answered questions from the excited auditorium of students. Prior to the celebration, Immaculate Conception Catholic School only had seven instruments in good working order for 110 students in the Grade 7 and 8 instrumental music program.

"We're proud to be a part of many kids' first concert experience and are excited to be here supporting the work of MusiCounts and The Acapella Foundation, helping to inspire and enable young people to experience music education," said Victor Zaraya, President of KIDZ BOP.

Host CBC Kids personality Tony Kim highlighted the importance of music education and MusiCounts' ongoing commitment to making music accessible to Canadian youth. Since 1997, MusiCounts has supported over 900 school music programs by donating nearly $9 million in musical instruments and equipment. Schools can apply to receive instruments via the MusiCounts Band Aid Program each fall at
