Singer [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Alicia Keys [/lastfm]is helping to preserve the arts by a generous donation to the high school in which she attended. Keys donated instruments and supplies to the Professional Performing Arts School in Manhattan, where she once was a student.

According to Keys,her alma mater is “underfunded and oversubscribed”; she is hoping that students as well as instructors will benefit from this donation.

In a contest that begins on December 15th, Keys is preparing to launch an online contest where people can share how they would use $1,000 “to make the world a better place.” The contest is part of the global campaign, “World of Betters.”
