MACON,GA–Businesses have been hit hard with the Covid-19 pandemic and that includes artists and entertainers.
Right now the ?478 Sings United? competition by United Way of Central Georgia, Mercer University, Visit Macon, 100.9 The Creek, and FOX24ABC16, local singers have helped raise over $30,000 to benefit the Central Georgia COVID-19 Response and Recovery Fund which will provide the entire community with assistance.
To help artists specifically the Jazz Association of Macon announced a relief fund for local musicians struggling financially during the COVID-19 pandemic.
In that announcement, JAM pledged to match individual donations up to $2,000 during the month of May.
In support of this effort, the Central Georgia COVID-19 Fund has pledged up to $4,000 of the funds raised by 478 Sings United to help many of the local musicians experiencing uncertain times.
The fund will also match the first $2,000 that is donated to the Musicians Relief Fund this month. In addition to the match, the fund will make a $2,000 contribution to the fund.
