Rallysong, the online platform where artists and their supporters rally for world-changing causes, has partnered with songwriter, vocalist and lead singer of Tonic, Emerson Hart, to raise $10,000 for Linkin Park's charity, Music for Relief.
Emerson Hart fans and supporters can visit Rallysong.com/EmersonHart to donate to the cause to receive an exclusive and previously-unreleased version of Emerson’s song “Hurricane,” which you’ll find on Emerson’s latest album “Beauty in Disrepair.” Once the fundraising goal has been met, everyone who donated to the campaign will get access to the unreleased version.
“I am honored to be partnering with Rallysong and Music for Relief for such an important cause,” Hart explains. “Music is a powerful way to bring people together around causes that matter.”
The Rallysong process works similar to a crowdfunding campaign. The user-friendly site allows you to join your favorite artists in solving world problems. Once a playlist has launched, you can give to the campaign and share with your friends to meet charitable fundraising goals. Once the goal is met, donors gain access to unreleased music, merchandise and experiences.
Funds raised from the campaign will benefit Music for Relief, an organization dedicated to providing aid to survivors of natural disasters and the prevention of such disasters. Specifically, the money raised from this campaign will support long term recovery for communities affected by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. More than six months after the storm, Music for Relief is working with partners on the ground to provide lifesaving programs including nutrition, water and sanitation, psychosocial support, and replacement and repair of health infrastructure.
