January 22, 2013 -- 2:17 pm PST

Happy On The Ground: 8 Days At GRAMMY Camp will premiere during GRAMMY Week at the GRAMMY Museum in Los Angeles on Feb. 5. The film is a feature-length music documentary that captures the heartwarming personalities and passions of an extraordinary group of 83 talented teenage high school musicians who participated in GRAMMY Camp, one of the GRAMMY Foundation's GRAMMY in the Schools music education programs for high school students and schools.

In eight challenging days, the students meet one another for the first time, collaborate, compose original music, and create a special concert performance. During this special week, the hand-picked group gains invaluable insight from top musicians including Gavin Rossdale, Boyz II Men, Barry Manilow, Dave Koz, and Pearl Jam's Dave Krusen. The film also explores the lack of music education funding in the U.S. school system, which is detrimental to the music industry's future and aspiring musicians. The film demonstrates the fresh-faced passion and determination of the students at GRAMMY Camp, which creates opportunities to find hope in the art of music.

Beginning Feb. 5, the documentary will be available at iTunes and across all other video on demand platforms.
