Each participating school will record their version of Mike Peters and The Alarm’s classic “Love Hope Strength” which will be available for worldwide download. All proceeds of the will benefit the Love Hope Strength foundation which is an international music-centric cancer charity co-founded in 2007 by leukemia survivors Mike Peters of the Welsh rock band The Alarm and President of CSI Entertainment James Chippendale. Peters also fronts the Scottish New Wave rock band Big Country.

The school that raises the most money will receive a very special visit reward from Mike Peters.
“Early detection of cancer can lead to an 80% survival rate and what better way to spread the word about cancer awareness to a younger generation than through the talented students of the School of Rock,’ said LOVE HOPE STRENGTH executive director Shannon Foley. “Love Hope Strength is proud to be teaming up with School of Rock and honored to have a song that has meant so much to Mike Peters, and millions of survivors around the world, be the centerpiece of this workshop.”
