On Monday, October 6, Godinez High School music class in Santa Ana got the surprise of a lifetime when Irvine-based band, Young the Giant (toured with Kings of Leon) came by to make an appearance and join in on a special jam session with the students. And it’s all for a good cause – Taco Bell Foundation for Teens (partner of Young the Giant) will be making a $20,000 donation to the school in the band’s name!

Once class commenced, the students started practicing the song, as usual. About five minutes into class, the band made their secret entrance and joined right in, harmonizing with the students without skipping a beat. The students got the experience of a lifetime, but the band felt even more rewarded by seeing their reactions. The day was packed with music, inspiration and happy faces!

Young the Giant was so touched and inspired by the students (many who have overcome serious struggles and remain upbeat and on track every single day), they chocked up on several occasions.

Taco Bell Foundation for Teens and celebrity ambassadors Young the Giant are bringing inspiration to high school students to empower them to achieve más. The Foundation is committed to inspiring and enabling America’s teens to graduate and accomplish great things through its programs, partnerships, and direct financial assistance. As part of its commitment, we have partnered with celebrity ambassadors like Young the Giant to help reach students and inspire them in new ways.
