Crooning legend Barry Manilow is donating a mammoth $300,000 (approximately £187,000) worth of musical instruments to school in Joplin, Missouri that was devastated by tornadoes earlier this year.

In addition to the extraordinary gift, which will make a huge difference to music education at Joplin High School, The Manilow Music Project is also sponsoring an initiative to get even more instruments to the school.

Manilow, 68, is working closely with Fitterling Dentistry, a local community business, to help drive more instruments to the school.

"I know firsthand how invaluable music can be to get you through life's tough times. It is an honour and a privilege to help these kids after such a disaster,” he said.

The Joplin tornado was one of Missouri's and America's deadliest tornados, the seventh deadliest tornado ever in US history.

Speaking to music-news.com, Fitterling Dentistry's Margie Fitterling said: "As a lifelong fan of Barry Man low's music and humanitarian efforts, my husband and I are thrilled to work with the Manilow Music Project to help our community."

Manilow is famous for songs such as Mandy, Can't Smile Without You, Could It Be Magic and his signature hit Copacabana (At the Copa).
