Students at an Albany school celebrate their love of reading through music.
Lamar Reese Magnet School of the Arts welcomed recording artists "Gabriel and The Rock Crew" to celebrate their annual Million Word Campaign and I Care Kickoff.
Through music and rap songs, Gabriel and The Rock Crew inspired students at Lamar Reese Magnet School to get excited about reading.
"They encourage them in the priority of getting good grades, being good students, obeying their teachers," says George Darrisaw, Arts Director/ Music Teacher.
Darrisaw says the kids are easily motivated through music.
"It helps them retain information better, studies have shown that music or anything dealing with arts can help improve on test scores," says Darrisaw.
5th grader Tyera Thomas agrees, saying her friends like learning through music.
"Some people they like music, music inspires some people, so some people like to learn by music," says Tyera Thomas, 5th Grade student.
She says she loves coming to school and thinks reading is very important.
"You have to know how to read to get where you want to go," says Thomas.
And she wants to be a nurse when she gets older and says being a good reader helps her get good grades in all subjects.
"Reading a lot is important because you have to know how to read to do your homework, read a book, essays, spell words," says Thomas.
Darrisaw says he hopes the kids will be singing the songs they hear today, in their sleep.
This is the fourth year Gabriel and The Rock Crew has come to Lamar Reese Magnet School of the Arts to sing.
They performed hit songs to capture the students' attention while relating each song to education.
