Do Something

Kelly Clarkson is helping to launch Do Something and VH1 Save the Music Foundation's annual Battle for the Bands contest, which holds a special place in the singer's heart.

"Every year, music programs are cut from schools all around the country, but if music hadn't been so important in my school, I probably wouldn't be standing here right now," Kelly says in a new PSA for the cause.

To help keep music programs in schools, Do Something and the Save the Music Foundation are asking you to make an original video explaining why music education is worth fighting for. Celebs and music industry execs will review the 10 videos with the most votes, and then choose winners who will receive prizes like concert tickets and cash for school.

Check out Kelly's PSA below, and find out more information on how you can enter the Battle for the Bands contest on DoSomething.org.
