LUMINEERS GIVE BACK TO COLORADO

The Denver-based Lumineers, along with ACTIVIST management, produced Colorado Gives Back, a live stream event that has raised thus far $600k benefiting MusiCares and the Colorado Restaurant Association. Through the Spotify COVID-19 Music Relief project, Spotify matched all donations, dollar for dollar to MusiCares.  

The event was hosted by eTown's Nick Forster and Bret Saunders from KBCO in Denver. The live stream included performances by The Lumineers, OneRepublic, Jewel, Nathaniel Rateliff, and Isaac Slade of The Fray, as well as special guests including former Governor John Hickenlooper, NFL greats Peyton Manning and Von Miller, Rockies all-stars Nolan Arenado and Charlie Blackmon, two-time Olympic gold medalist Mikaela Shiffrin and Colorado Governor Jared Polis

Wesley Schultz of The Lumineers said, "Proud to call Colorado my home for the last 10 years, and so grateful to every person who tuned in and donated. Thank you to all the Colorado-based musicians, athletes, politicians, and chefs who took part in this fundraiser and special thanks to Spotify and MusiCares. With your help we came together to see that Colorado Gives Back."

The event is still viewable on YouTube and the link to donate is still active. In addition, T-shirts commemorating Colorado Gives Back are available for purchase here with all profits going to the two Colorado Gives Back charities.

A portion of the funds collected from Colorado Gives Back will be focused specifically on providing assistance to Colorado-based music industry professionals who have lost work due to COVID-19. For more information on eligibility please visit the MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund FAQ page here.
