Musicians and Partners Bring Awareness to the Essential Work of MusiCares to Support the Music Community Worldwide
In support of The Recording Academy and its affiliated charitable foundation MusiCares, Ultimate Ears Pro announced the #MusicFromHome campaign to help address the concerns of working musicians and crew members currently out of work during this difficult time.
Ultimate Ears Pro plans to donate $10,000 to the MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund through their UE Cares initiative as the first step in uplifting our live performance community. The donation goes hand-in-hand with highlighting a variety of emerging and established artists through a series of weekly live performances and an online sweepstakes on @UltimateEarsPro social channels.
The goal of #MusicFromHome is to Connect with our music community, Create inspiration among artists and Share our love of music. The #MusicFromHome series is scheduled to run for five weeks and serves to provide musicians with a much-needed platform to showcase their music. Rachel K Collier and Heather Youmans kicked off the series last week and the upcoming schedule includes:
- Thursday, April 9: Lauren Mayhew
- Friday, April 10: Destiny Petrel
- Wednesday, April 15: Ellis Hall
- Friday, April 17: The Vindys
As artists temporarily shift from playing live on-stage to creating music at-home, Ultimate Ears Pro invites fans to submit their own at-home music performances for the chance to win one of five ultimate #MusicFromHome kits to continue making music. Featuring a pair of Ultimate Ears Pro in-ear monitors, Ultimate Ears MEGABOOM 3 Bluetooth speaker and Blue Yeti X Microphone, one winner plans to be selected weekly.
To enter, fans can create and share a video of their music performance from home in a comment on the Ultimate Ears Pro Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn channels. Fans can additionally post the video on their Instagram feed, tagging @ultimateearspro and @bluemicrophones alongside the hashtags #MusicFromHome and #MusiCaresForUs for a chance to win.
