It was no ordinary Wednesday at Patrick Henry High School in Minneapolis.

Pop-singing trio, and Grammy-Nominated artists "The Jonas Brothers" showed up totally unexpected.

The Jonas Brothers surprised 600 students by announcing they'll be performing as a part of "We Day" on October 8, 2013 at the Xcel Center.

"We Day" is a movement to get kids involved in volunteering and social change. The only way a student can go to "We Day" is to earn it through volunteering. Kids need to do one act of local and global service this year to earn one of the 18,000 seats in the concert.

"We Day" is trying to make social change cool. Actress and Humanitarian Mia Farrow and Former President Soviet Union Mikhail Gorbachev will be speaking at the event.

Each kid is invited to find an issue they care about, whether it be bullying, child labor issues, poverty. The Jonas Brothers each have an issue they're passionate about.

Nick Jonas has Type 1 Diabetes and is involved in Diabetes research, Joe Jonas works with the Special Olympics, and Kevin Jonas focuses on volunteerism.
