We’re proud to announce that we’re officially partnering with Kevin Bacon’s SixDegrees.Org Foundation to help support PLAY ON: Celebrating the power of music to make change!
PLAY ON unites today’s great artists to nourish our souls and nurture our communities. With music as the soundtrack of social change, this star-studded event will raise money to end hunger and fight for social justice. On December 15th at 8PM ET, PLAY ON will be broadcast LIVE from legendary venues and air on CBS, YouTube, and SiriusXM to energize the nation to end hunger, meet critical human needs, and pave the way for transformative social justice.
In this moment marked by global pandemic, unprecedented hunger, and public outcry for justice, there has never been a more important time to PLAY ON!
Join the party, and partner with the likes of Bruce Springsteen, John Legend, Ringo Starr, Bon Jovi, Sheryl Crow, Maren Morris, Ziggy Marley, Snoop Dogg, and others playing LIVE at venues in NYC, L.A., and Nashville!
As part of the PLAY ON team, our foundation will be joining forces with Kevin Bacon (producer) and his foundation, SIX DEGREES.ORG (key organizing body). The money we raise, of which 100% will donated to PLAY ON, will be submitted through Six Degrees. We’re really looking forward to working with both Kevin Bacon and Stacy Huston (whom you may recall we have showcased on our podcast).
