Tejano music legend Little Joe wants you to buy Texas Music specialty license plates to benefit music education in the state.
The “La Nubes” singer posted a photo of himself holding the specialty license plate with the following caption:
“Orale Raza! Little Joe here. Join me in helping support the next generation of tejanito and tejanita musicians by purchasing a Texas Music specialty license plate! $22 of the $30 goes to music education and community programs in our great state of Texas!”
According to the Texas Music Office, funds received through your purchase of the Texas Music license plate will go toward one of three programs: To finance (in whole or in part) the purchase of a musical instrument from any Texas retailer for students who couldn’t otherwise afford them; or for a series of one-hour lessons by area private music instructors or professional musicians. Additionally, funds may be used to in grant awards to 501(c)3 non-profits so that they may fund community programs, from live music events to educational seminars. So far, more than $150,000 worth of Grant Awards have gone to Texas schools.
You can use a credit card to order your Texas Music plate online through the Texas DMV’s website.
