Rhapsody International Kicks off a Strategic Partnership to Raise Awareness of the Music Community in Need
Rhapsody International has announced an initiative to give back to the community that is the backbone of Rhapsody and Napster. During GRAMMY week, they committed a $100,000 donation to MusiCares. In addition to their contribution, they have committed to work alongside MusiCares to raise awareness of the emergency financial assistance, addiction recovery resources, and other health and human services provided to music people in need, and celebrate the success stories this work.
“At Rhapsody and Napster, we value music and the individuals who make it,” said Jody McKinley, vice president, Rhapsody International. “By partnering with MusiCares, we are able to play a part in providing the music community with the fundamental support they need to ensure that great music continues to be created for our members around the world. Our members are passionate music lovers and we’re excited to work together with them to support MusiCares’ important mission.”
As part of their ongoing work with MusiCares, they have set a goal to raise an additional $25,000 and have invited their members and friends to help support their efforts by contributing to this campaign. The full $25,000 and any other proceeds raised will go directly to the Foundation to support their programs.
“With Rhapsody and Napster, we are able to connect directly with music lovers who are passionate about supporting the music community,” said Kristen Madsen, Sr. Vice President, MusiCares. “This support is critical to our ability to continue to provide resources to members of the music industry in need.”
