(HOUSTON) — The Twitterverse exploded Thursday when actor and comedian Kevin Hart pledged to donate $50,000 to Texas Southern University‘s marching band, “The Ocean of Soul,” on the Tom Joyner Morning Show.

Hart hung with the crew all morning to co-host and promote the new movie “Think Like A Man Too,” which hits theaters Friday.

On August 1-3, 2014, TSU alumnus Michael Strahan will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.

To honor his achievement and celebrate Tiger pride, the marching band has been invited to participate in the prestigious Enshrinement Celebration by leading the Grand Parade through downtown Canton and performing at the fan appreciation tailgate party on the Hall of Fame campus.

The Tom Joyner Morning Show will be in Houston Friday hosting live from The Breakfast Klub and later at Grooves for Happy Hour to raise money for Texas Southern University’s Ocean of Soul.
