Look out, Clay Aiken, you may have competition for most charitable American Idol contestant.

Bo Bice made a surprise visit to Youree Drive Middle School in Shreveport, Louisiana, yesterday as part of a $10,000 donation of new equipment.

Bice, the fourth season runner-up, has been making a name for himself with radio hits such as "The Real Thing." He arrived after students were told their teacher, Krista Fanning, had won new musical instruments and equipment in a contest sponsored by Intune magazine.

Needless to say, jaws dropped when the American Idol performer entered the room.

The new amps, drum set, guitars and keyboard will comprise what the school hopes will be a state of the arm music rom. Fanning was one of 200 music teachers across the country who wrote essays explaining why they needed new equipment for their students.

She obviously did a mighty fine job with her entry.
