This production is taking place at Palmerston North Intermediate Normal School; the school’s Principal, Hamish Ruawai, says that a parent of one of the school’s children has a connection with Black, so they reached out to him about this production.
Upon learning about the school’s production of School of Rock, Jack sent the students a super lovely and inspiring video message. Per that video, he shares, “It’s me Jack Black, I heard you were doing School of Rock. Are you doing School of Rock?” He then goes on to add, “That rules.”
He continues, “Hey, you rule the school and you rock the block and I just wanted to wish you luck, I wanted to send you good vibes and rock ‘n’ roll spirit. Go get it! And don’t forget… [he sings] there’s no way you can stop, the School of Rock.”
Leave it to Jack to be so damn wholesome! He is easily one of the coolest guys on the planet! Further evidence of this comes in the form of a recent fan interaction involving the rocker-actor. While in attendance at a charity event, Black met with a terminally ill fan, who happens to adore School of Rock, and sang to him. It was a truly lovely moment that was captured on video (and you can check it out for yourself by following the link below).
