Kid Rock Starts Music Scholarship

Kid Rock has started a new scholarship fund to help promote music education at Wayne State University in his hometown of Detroit, Michigan.

The Kid Rock Scholarship is available to students studying the business and performance sides of music.

"Detroit has been very, very good to our family," Kid's brother Billy Ritchie said. "This is one way he thought he could actually do something for these kids. If we can empower one of these kids to go and get a degree, they are going to help 10 other kids. We owe it to them."

In a bid to raise money, Kid Rock, his Made in Detroit apparel line and Wayne University will create 2,500 limited edition T-shirts with the school's name and the 'Made in Detroit' logo. They're hoping to initially raise $25,000 from the sale. Kudos to Kid for putting his time and effort into something as great as this.
