Two GCA Co-Founders Named GRAMMY Fund Ambassadors
Jimmy "Jam" Harris and Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds have been named GRAMMY Fund Ambassadors for the Recording Academy’s newest advocacy endeavor.
“Tonight, we are proud to launch the GRAMMY Creators Alliance, a coalition of many artists — some of whom you see right here at the GRAMMYs. Together, we will advise those who make policy in music and in government so that our next generation of creators are able to make tomorrow's music as great as tonight’s.”
—GRAMMY winner Jennifer Hudson
“Music activism is coming at exactly the right time. From the Turtles to Taylor Swift, longtime established and new generations are speaking out. With all the changes in how we listen to music and the review of copyright laws which are set by Congress — music creators and fans must speak out NOW.”
—GRAMMY winner Ryan Tedder
