TV’s “Secret Millionaire” Returns to Joy of Music School

Surprise 2010 donor to check in on charity, share books, stories and frozen yogurt


KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — July 1, 2011 — She seemed to be a volunteer of humble means, an ordinary woman whose good deeds were being filmed by a crew purporting to create a documentary. But instead she brought a huge surprise, a lot of love, and some greatly appreciated cash for the Joy of Music School last summer. The woman, Dani Johnson, is a millionaire — which she revealed while presenting the School with a $40,000 donation. Her generous act was captured by the cameras of the ABC Television program “Secret Millionaire” and broadcast to over 13 million people in March.

This week Dani Johnson is returning to the place that inspired her, where the art and discipline of music transform young lives.
