Score one for the kids.

Remember Louisville Leopard Percussionists, the group of children who laid down their interpretation of a few crummy Led Zeppelin songs and just crushed it?

After Jimmy Page sang their praises on his Facebook page in February, Oz finally woke up and took notice of the kids’ rendition of Black Sabbath’s “Crazy Train.” Check out their version below, replete with a very organic “Ay Ay Ay…..”

According to the Courier-Journal, Ozzy Osbourne’s tipped his hat and donated about $10,000 to the group. In a letter to the kids, Osbourne says:

“Myself, my whole family and my fans all loved your rendition of ‘Crazy Train.’ Keep up the good work.”

Signing the letter, “God Bless,” it was indeed a blessing he kept it short and sweet — he probably just wanted to move on and make the most of the night.
