A rockin' bar mitzvah: Houston drummer gives back through music

HOUSTON, Texas -- Solomon Levin loves playing the drums, so it should come as no surprise he incorporated music into his upcoming bar mitzvah.

"Every bar mitzvah kid is expected to do a major mitzvah project, a good deed," says Solomon's mom Melissa Levin. "I suggested to him an instrument drive, but Solomon chose not to do that."

What did he choose? Solomon decided to form a band and play a benefit concert called "Mitzvah City Limits".

Levin attends a private school for students with learning differences, so he wanted the show to raise money for a school where similar kids don't have access to similar tools and services.

"I just want to be able to give back to kids with learning differences like me," said Solomon.

The event raised $6,000 for Attucks Middle School, which is a school located within Houston Independent School District.
