What is Heal the Music Day?
Heal The Music Day is an effort to raise awareness and support for those who make a living in the music industry, 76% of whom are self-employed or part of small business without access to group health benefits – including songwriters, producers, audio engineers, musicians, recording artists, publishers, and more benefitting Music Health Alliance.
“In the world of the working musician, good health is something most of us take for granted…that is, until something goes wrong,” said Rodney Crowell. “When and if it does, there is no greater patient advocacy group than our very own Music Health Alliance. MHA has provided support to people across 49 states and so we want to carry the message beyond Nashville and are asking everyone in the music community to pledge a small percentage of their single day earnings on ‘Heal The Music Day’ to MHA so they can continue their critical work for many years to come.”
How can you participate?
This is the best part. You do not have to add a show or do anything you are not already doing. Join the collective of artists, song writers, and music businesses who have pledged to give this year. Pledges can be as simple as a percent of a concert, event, creative work or single donation made on or before Heal The Music Day. Every $1 donation = $30 in critical healthcare resources.
Thank you for making a difference in the lives of music makers everywhere!
