Chris & Morgane Stapleton, Lauren Daigle, Keith Urban, Rodney Crowell, Ronnie Dunn, Tina Parol, Vince Gill and Wiatr & Associates are among the artists participating in the fifth annual “Heal The Music Day” on October 21 to raise awareness and funding to support the Music Health Alliance (MHA).
In just nine years, MHA has provided free healthcare advocacy and access to life-saving health and financial resources to more than 18,000 working music professionals nationwide and is entirely funded through individual and corporate donations and grants.
Launched in 2017, “Heal The Music Day” is the brainchild of Grammy-winning musician Rodney Crowell, who is championing this year’s campaign with MHA in an effort to raise awareness and support for the emergency and ongoing medical needs of the U.S. creative community.
Thanks to the direct efforts of Music Health Alliance, members of the music community across the country have gained access to lifesaving cancer treatment, transplants, medications to treat Parkinson’s, end of life care, and many other crucial services.
“In the world of the working musician, good health is something most of us take for granted – that is, until something goes wrong,” said Crowell. “The healthcare advocates at MHA ensure that no music professional must face a healthcare crisis alone.”
“It is crucial to support MHA’s work to heal the music and the best part is that music makers don’t have to do anything that they are not already doing. Pledges can be as simple as a percent of a concert, event, creative work, or single donation made for Heal The Music Day October 21,” he added.
