It's been two and a half years since a video hit YouTube of a group of kids playing an all-percussion cover of Osbourne's hit "Crazy Train." In that time, their video has racked up nearly a million views, and it just recently earned the attention of Osbourne himself.

It clearly took him a while to get around to watching it, but when he did, the famous rocker was clearly impressed — too impressed to just hit "like" or even leave a nice comment on the video. No, Osbourne responded by sending a personal letter and a surprise to the group behind the video, the Louisville Leopard Percussionists.

According to Rolling Stone, the Louisville Leopard Percussionists is a community nonprofit that gives music lessons to around 60 students, mostly between the ages of 7 and 14. In addition to learning music skills, the kids learn to work together as a group to create covers of famous songs, like "Crazy Train." They've been noticed by some other famous musicians, including Jimmy Page, who praised them on Facebook after their renditions of Led Zeppelin's "Kashmir," "Immigrant Song" and "The Ocean" went viral.

Osbourne's typewritten letter to the Louisville Leopard Percussionists reads, "Myself, my whole family and my fans all loved your rendition of 'Crazy Train.' Keep up the good work."

And, as if a letter from Osbourne wasn't enough, it was accompanied by a check for a $10,000 donation to the Louisville Leopard Percussionists, a group that is supported almost entirely by similar donations.
