Lady Antebellum Surprise Music Teacher and Students in First ‘7FOR7′ Episode
Lady Antebellum are making a whole lot of fans happy with the release of '747' on Tuesday (Sept. 30), but there are seven fans in particular who will remember this week forever as the trio launches their '7FOR7' campaign. The group made their first stop in Miami, Fla. to surprise one of their biggest fans, music teacher Vivian Gonzalez.
'7FOR7' is seven surprises for seven fans in seven days, and Lady A are hitting up spots all across the United States. “We can’t wait to see this idea come to life,” Hillary Scott shares previously. “There are so many inspiring fans out there who we want to celebrate! We have some huge plans up our sleeves, and you never know where we might pop up!”
Gonzalez's school, South Miami K-8 Center, was their first mission, and it was a perfect launch. When the 'Downtown' singers walked into her classroom, the music teacher's expression and surprise was priceless. Scott faced the group of kids and asked, "Do you love Ms. Gonzalez?" Her question was answered with a rowdy "yeah!" as the kids stood and cheered.
"We've partnered with an amazing organization called Little Kids Rock and they are going to be donating a lot of instruments and supplies for your classroom," Scott told Gonzalez.
Kelley added, "We've got guitars and everything for the class."
But that wasn't the whole surprise: Lady A had another one up their collective sleeve.
"The other part of the surprise: our new record comes out tomorrow and you and your husband and your girls are flying up to New York City with us to see our album release show," Scott told Gonzalez. Haywood added with a laugh, "If you'd be willing to come with us."
At the end of their visit, Scott sang an a capella version of 'I Was Here,' and to her surprise, all the kids sang along, and their sweet voices visibly moved the songstress to tears.
With one surprise down and six to go, Lady A's first stop was a smashing success!
