#MUSICMATTERS VIRTUAL "TIP JAR" BENEFITING MUSICARES® COVID-19 RELIEF FUND

A 100% grassroots charitable initiative organized by Encore Live & Garth Brooks.


Recent weeks have brought immense change and anxiety for many. But none moreso than those in the music industry affected by the cancellation of performances and live events due to COVID-19.

#MusicMatters is a 100% grass-roots philanthropic initiative organized and launched by Fort Worth, Texas-based experience marketing and event production firm Encore Live as a way to give back to our devastated music community. Net proceeds from this auction will go directly to The Recording Academy’s MusiCares charity, care of its COVID-19 Relief Fund set up to help music people in every capacity of the industry who are most in need. Grants up to $1000 will be delivered to recipients to provide basic living assistance (rent or mortgage) and help compensate for lost work due to coronavirus-related cancellations.

#MusicMatters auction items and once-in-a-lifetime experiences are being added in real-time as they are contributed by the artists; be sure to check back with us daily!

In the midst of this growing pandemic’s human and economic fallout, let us remember how much #MusicMatters to all of us.
