TAMPA, FL - Famous saxophonist Kenny G performed in Clearwater, Florida Friday night, but gave another surprise performance on a flight leaving the Sunshine State. Kenny G was on board a Delta Airlines flight leaving Tampa International Airport and heading to Los Angeles Saturday morning.
The saxophonist was sitting next to a woman who was raising money for charity, and he agreed to play on the plane for donations. Kenny G walked up and down the plane aisle playing his saxophone and collected more than $2,000 for the charity.
One passenger said, “Halfway through the flight, they turn the plane lights on and announce a special guest, Kenny G. Apparently, this women raising funds for Relay for Life, (because her daughter died from cancer at age 30), announced that he would play if we raised $1,000. Within roughly 5 minutes, we all raised closed to $2k. He performed and it was just an amazing moment. So awesome of him to do that so randomly, and for such a great cause.”
