There was electricity in the air as some kids from Kingwood took center stage during a KISS concert in Sugar Land Tuesday night. The legendary rock band invited students from Kingwood High School to the Smart Financial Centre, putting a spotlight on fundraising efforts to help the district recover after Harvey flooding.

"I just couldn't believe it at first. I didn't think the actual band KISS," said 17-year-old theater student Devan Karp. " I felt like I was dreaming."

The band asked audience members and fans to donate to help replace band and orchestra musical instruments and theater department equipment destroyed by Hurricane Harvey. You can click here to make a donation to Kingwood High School.

Students donned KISS makeup to welcome the band, as did Sugar Land Mayor Joe Zimmerman. "We've got a council meeting next Tuesday," Zimmerman said, with a laugh. "I sure hope I still don't have it on."
