‘Git Up’ singer Blanco Brown visits Fulton school; StubHub donates $84K in music gear

Westlake High School students may have done the “the two-step, then cowboy boogie” when Blanco Brown, the “trailer trap” singer of the popular “Git Up” song visited them Thursday. 

Brown, who is a graduate of the Fulton County school, performed during a school assembly of 700 students, according to a news release. He is known for mixing country and hip-hop musical styles. 

Brown’s performance came before StubHub, an online ticket exchange company owned by eBay, gave students 64 new instruments, guitar cases and keyboard stands worth $84,000, according to a news release.

The donation was made by StubHub’s #TicketFoward Program in partnership with the Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation, which aims to support musical education in at-risk public schools, the news release said. The three-year program began in 2018 and seeks to donate $3 million in musical instruments to schools.
