On April 25, our reporter Sky Arnold told you about Rex Yape, a talented young musician who was accepted to the prestigious Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia but did not have the $1,300 needed to make up the tuition difference after scholarships. Things were not looking good for the Antioch High School student. Yape was using a borrowed oboe, and was even going to have to give that up.

Thanks to the generosity of our viewers, Rex has raised over $10,000 -- enough to attend the school and buy his very own oboe.
