In a surprise visit to the Bronx school, John Philip Sousa M.S. 142, Britney Spears donated a $10,000 check as an endowment for the school's music program. An eight-piece band called the Souastones performed for the pop star, led by music director, Sal Mazzola, who told her, "When you're ready to take us on the road for an opening act, we're ready." Britney, who's planning a 2009 tour, answered, "You'll be the first people I call." The donation was from Elizabeth Arden, which manufactures Britney's fragrances, Believe, Fantasy and Curious.
