Dot Records recording artists Maddie & Tae hosted the Disney Musicals in Schools Student Share on Monday, May 18, 2015 at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center in Nashville.

The duo was there on behalf of the CMA Foundation, which funds Disney Musicals in Schools. The organization grants public schools performance rights to some of Disney’s most well-loved musicals. More than 300 students from six Metro Nashville Public Schools hit the stage, showing off numbers from “The Lion King KIDS,” “The Jungle Book KIDS,” “Aladdin KIDS,” and “Alice in Wonderland JR.”

“We couldn’t be more excited to be here today,” said the duo’s Maddie Marlow. “Tae and I both express ourselves through music, so it’s amazing to highlight how music is a good way for kids to express themselves and find out who they are.”

Nashville was only the second metro area outside of New York City to have the program. To date, the CMA Foundation has donated $68,000 to fund the project through grants made on behalf of artists who perform each year for free during the CMA Music Festival.

Maddie & Tae will perform on the Chevrolet Riverfront Stage and at LP Field during this year’s Festival.
