Yowzers, there is a god in heaven!
And those in need can offer 'thanks' to Music Canada and the three major labels.
Canada’s three major labels – Sony Music Entertainment, Universal Music and Warner Music – are providing direct financial support for the Unison Benevolent Fund, the non-profit charity that provides counselling and emergency relief services to individuals working in the Canadian music community.
“This support helps Unison help the music community- and with the support of our member labels, Music Canada is proud to work even more closely with Unison to provide targeted support for the benefit of our creative industry,” Music Canada President and CEO Graham Henderson said in a statement Thursday.
Additionally, Music Canada has announced that it has expanded its supporting role for the organization. In response to the pandemic, Music Canada is providing Unison financial and administrative resource support, together with government relations expertise and guidance. “As one of the founding supporters of Unison, we have seen the crucial need for their services,” continued Henderson, “and we have seen the impact of their relief on those who come to Unison for help.”
“Unison is enormously grateful for the continuous support from some of the biggest players in the Canadian music industry,” said Unison Fund Executive Director, Amanda Power. “The direct and valued efforts from Canada’s major record labels ensures that we can continue to provide discreet counselling and health services in addition to immediate financial relief for the most vulnerable in our industry at this very critical time.”
