There is nothing as powerful as an artist’s voice when it comes to “doing good”.
Artists inspire others to dig deep inside and find parts of themselves they didn’t know exist. Artists stand as the inspiration and hope for so many across the globe.
It’s the responsibility of an artist and their team to find ways to “do good”.
Over the past few months, Grace VanderWaal has done a lot of good.
She donated funds to start a local school choir that didn’t have one. Fender sent ukuleles to the students who had never owned instruments before.
This month, she went on a mission with the Starkey hearing foundation to give hearing aids to deaf children in Africa.
Earlier today, she performed for disadvantaged youth as part of MSG’s Garden of Dreams benefit concert at the legendary Beacon Theatre.
Most artists are passionate about finding ways to do good, but it’s the one that go out of their way to make it happen on a consistent basis who lead the example for the rest of us.
