Southfield (WJBK) - The S.A.Y Detroit Play Center is getting a little help in their goal to improve the lives of Detroit's neediest.
With a little help from Nashville recording artist Frankie Ballard, the "Notes for Notes" recording studio will be opening soon. It will provide kids with free access to instruments and music lessons, giving them a chance to become their own super stars.
"Notes for Notes" is a national nonprofit that specializes in building these kinds of opportunities.
Courtesy of so many partners, including Mitch Albom, Kid Rock and the CMA Foundation, the studio will give kids a chance to do a number of after-school activities.
"This center had to be salvaged from ruins," said Mitch Albom. "There was no electricity, and no running water."
Now the rec center is equipped with individual study rooms, a basketball court, a rock climbing wall, and a brand new football field donated by Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford.
It'll be finished sometime in September.
