Portugal. The Man, Mister Holland's Opus Foundation Jam Together
Portugal. The Man joined forces with the students of Ron Russel Middle School in Portland, OR to record a special live version of "Feel It Still," all to benefit the Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation.
“We grew up in Alaska where music was not an option in school or life really. It is great to see Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation give these kids a chance we did not have. Not everyone is a mathematician or a scientist, some of us think a little different and this program encourages that,” says Portugal. The Man’s, Zach Carothers in a press statement.
The Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation donates musical instruments and vital support services to under-funded school music programs across the country in an effort to give more students the many benefits of music education, help them achieve more in school and inspire creativity and expression through playing music.
