NEAR WEST SIDE — A Rihanna song is giving Chicago Public Schools students some aid after the Minnesota-based band Low decided to donate all iTunes sales from its cover of “Stay” to a Chicago nonprofit.

“It was kind of a really happy surprise for us," said Kyle Curry, director of Rock For Kids, a nonprofit that provides music education to underserved Chicago kids. “It was above and beyond anything we could have possibly imagined.”

Low — an alt-rock Minneapolis-based band — first performed the cover at the Pitchfork Music Festival in July. Low's version of the song was released on iTunes Sept. 12.
