A Celebrity Encounter for KIPP LA Prep Musicians
October 31, 2011
The KIPPsters were thrilled to talk to Mr. Rathbone about his movies, acting career, and musical inspiration. The KIPP LA Prep band and Mr. Rathbone both played a few songs before Little Kids Rock revealed a generous donation of several electric guitars to KIPP LA Prep's music program. In turn, the Prepsters presented Mr. Rathbone with an acoustic guitar signed by the entire class. Needless to say, it was a memorable start to the school year for the KIPPsters!
