MAUMELLE, Ark. (KTHV) - The Victoria High School R&B Band from Canada is visiting Maumelle High School Friday, April 24.

This band made up of British Columbia Canadian high school students is expected to arrive in Maumelle between 9:30 and 10 a.m. The band is expected to hold two performances for the Maumelle students, which will occur in the cafeteria. 

The R&B band is working with Arkansas native Al Bell. Bell made an appearance at the Maumelle High School's banquet in 2014. Since then, the school has honored him by creating an 'Al Bell Award of Excellence', which is annually presented to a Maumelle High School band student.

Bell is known for being co-owner of Staxx Records in Memphis, Tenn., as well as being president of Motown Records.
