HBCU Alumnus & NFL Star Michael Strahan Donates $100k to TSU (8319 hits)

Michael Strahan says he will donate $100,000 to TSU's "Ocean of Soul" marching band.

The students will use the money to travel to Canton, Ohio, so they can play for Strahan's induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

The band only needed $150,000, but with Strahan's donation, a $50,000 donation from comedian Kevin Hart and other pledges, the band surpassed its goal.

"This is an exciting opportunity, and we'll be seen by a number of people that have never seen this band before, so we want to make sure we give them an excellent performance as we always do," said TSU's band director Richard Lee.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame ceremony will be held Aug. 2.
