— Kennewick High School received five guitars donated by musician Keith Urban to a music foundation.

Teachers first learned of the donation from the GRAMMY Foundation in February, a release said.

Urban, a New Zealand country music star who's won several Grammy awards and other honors, donated 50 guitars to the foundation for distribution.

The donation includes acoustic and electric guitars. The instruments have already arrived at the school and are being used by students in Kennewick High’s jazz lab, said district spokeswoman Robyn Chastain.
