the 2017- 2018 HEROES DONATE BLOOD High School Tour
Music Brings Life is proudly producing a series of educational assemblies at high schools throughout New York City. This is the HEROES DONATE BLOOD High School Tour.
We are visiting local high schools so that we can explain to students the importance of donating blood. We use music to get our message across and inspire young people in diverse populations to become blood donors.
The results have been amazing. Two of the schools on our tour, Far Rockaway and John Dewey, both reported that they more than tripled the number of people who came out to donate at their blood drives following our assemblies!
The first school on our tour was John Adams HS in Queens on Wednesday and Thursday, February 24 & 25, 2016. We produced five assemblies over two days and more than 1,000 students attended.
Keenan "Special" Bristol, president and founder of Music Brings Life, entertained and educated the students. He performed his original song, "Superman 1,2,3 Away," which supports our slogan, "Heroes Donate Blood."
We held a contest to see how much the students learned about blood donation during the assembly and the winners received Music Brings Life t-shirts.
MetroPCS gave away away cell phones and held a free raffle where two lucky students won tickets to the Rihanna concert at the Barclays Center. This was a fun and educational event for all!
Here are the events that currently comprise the HEROES DONATE BLOOD High School Tour in 2016 and 2017. Additional assemblies will be added in the days to come.

Heroes Donate Blood
When one unit of blood is donated, it gets divided into components that can be used to help as many as three patients in need. You are a hero when you donate blood because you are helping save lives.
Music Brings Life is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that educates young people in the Black, Latino and Caribbean communities about the importance of donating blood.
We use music to get our message across and inspire young people in diverse populations to donate blood. Additionally, we facilitate the donation process by partnering with blood collection organizations.
Watch SPECIAL perform "Superman 1,2,3 Away," his original song that supports our slogan, "Heroes Donate Blood."
