All of the ticket sales go towards MusiCares’ work supporting those in the music community hardest hit by the pandemic.
The music community has been sidelined by this pandemic for almost a year now. Since March 2020, MusiCares has distributed $24 million to 30,000 music creators in need as well as their families. But as the pandemic wears on, the financial need continues. MusiCares conducted a wellness survey in October that found 51% of respondents had low levels of confidence in being able to afford basic living expenses during the pandemic. Also, 62% of respondents indicated experiencing financial stress daily.
Music on a Mission is a tribute to these individuals – the humans behind the music, many of whom have been struggling and out of work since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic– and 100% of ticket sales will go towards supporting them. Buy a ticket today and give back to a community that has given so much to the world.
This is the first time the public will have access to MusiCares’ official GRAMMY Week event.
The Person of the Year gala, MusiCares’ signature GRAMMY Week event, is a Past Person of the Year honorees include Paul McCartney, Dolly Parton, and Quincy Jones, to name just a few on the impressive list.
Unsurprisingly, MusiCares could not host a traditional Person of the Year event this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In its place, Music on a Mission is a virtual fundraiser that contains all the magic of a conventional Person of the Year. The only difference? Price. Individual tickets to Person of the Year range from $2000 to $8000. Music on a Mission tickets are just $25.
