VH1 Save The Music Ambassador Robin Thicke Surprises Students With Performance At Viacom HQ

Welcome aboard, Mr. Thicke!

Robin Thicke was here for the music —literally— when he stopped by Viacom’s Times Square headquarters this afternoon to delight fans with a surprise performance in support of VH1’s Save The Music Foundation.

Students from the East Quogue Elementary School were the VIPs for the afternoon as #Thicke ran through hits like “Dreamworld” and “Magic.” But the songs weren’t his only gift—he also donated a $10,000 piano to the school and hosted a Q&A session to enlighten the young music lovers.

“I can’t imagine what my life would’ve looked like without music, so it’s important for me to pay it forward by supporting ways to keep music in schools,” he told the crowd.

“We are so proud to have Robin Thicke as an ambassador,” Save The Music Foundation VP Paul Cothran added. “His generosity and continued support of VH1 Save The Music make him not only a great musician, but an outstanding role model and advocate for music education.”

Through Charitybuzz, Robin is also auctioning a meet-and-greet and fan social. All of the money raised by this event will go directly towards financing instruments in public schools.
