Billy Joel Auctioning Autographed Piano For Music Students

Veteran singer Billy Joel is auctioning a personalized baby grand piano — expected to raise more than $50,000 — to donate to aspiring music students.

The Uptown Girl hitmaker has decided to sell off a Steinway & Sons piano to benefit Ten O’Clock Classics, a non-profit organisation which provides music lessons and instruments for school children.

Joel will sign and personalize the keyboard’s protective covering for the winning bidder once the Charity Buzz auction closes on April 2.

Bidding is expected to raise $60,000, and all proceeds from the sale will be donated to Ten O’Clock Classics as well as the Amy Winehouse Foundation.
