Fundraiser With James Durbin & Orianthi!

“Heaven In This Hell – 3:30”


March 2012: American Idol finalist James Durbin blew the audience away with his tribute to Ronnie James Dio, and Michael Jackson’s “This Is It” guitarist Orianthi inspired all with her new song “Heaven In This Hell” produced by Dave Stewart.

“If it weren’t for music scholarships I wouldn’t have learned what I know now. So when I got the call to do the benefit for the Rock School Scholarship Fund, I jumped on the opportunity. I play music because it’s what I love to do & every single kid that I met at the event, had that same fire. The kids are just simply amazing! Singers, guitarists, drummers, bassists, keyboards, they have it all!!
I’m so happy I got to do this with the kids. It’s easy to lose track in this business, but playing with those kids brought my fire back. The fire that made me want to be a singer in the 1st place. A huge thank you from the bottom of my heart to the RSSF, the teachers, all the kids, & to anyone & everyone who supports this great cause. Thanks for letting me be a part of it!!
You Rock!!!” — JAMES DURBIN

“I had so much fun jamming out with the kids. They are all so talented and sweet. I knew from when I was 6 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.” — ORIANTHI
