Home Uncategorized Help MusiCares Help Musicians This Christmas

Six music bloggers are competing for tickets to this year’s MusiCares Person of the Year dinner honoring Paul McCartney. Now you can read all their entries and vote to send some lucky writer to Los Angeles next February. Here’s the link: http://blog.musicares.com/2011/11/03/vote-musicares-blogger/ MusiCares is also running its Be A Part of the Heart campaign this Christmas, accepting donation from $1 up from all music fans. This is all to help musicians in need. The people who play on your favorite records don’t necessarily have health insurance, and often need assistance. They’re not Madonna. They’re the people who make Madonna’s–and other artists like Rihanna, Britney Spears, Justin Bieber, and Carrie Underwood– sound so good.
