Music For A Cause, Singapore’s first and only altruistic music festival that encourages giving and volunteerism through music is returning for its fifth and final edition on 28 & 20 May 2020 on Facebook Live.
The music festival will take place over two sessions per day: 4pm to 6.15pm and 7pm to 9.15pm. Virtual festival-goers will get to enjoy intimate performances from some of Singapore’s top music talents, as well as interact and live chat with their favourite music acts through the virtual meet and greet.
Music For A Cause 2020 will see the return of 12 MFAC alumni and crowd favourites, including Jack and Rai, MICapella, 53A, SHYE and Charlie Lim coming together to raise funds to support local musicians, hawkers and front-liners affected by Covid-19.
Organised by Love Action Project and powered by National Youth Council Singapore, MFAC 2020 will be partnering with SGMUSO and Hawkers United to fundraise and launch the following activities:
- #FundAGig (https://give.asia/fundagig)
To support local musicians whose livelihoods are disrupted by Covid-19, the #FundAGig campaign aims to support artistes by encouraging them to host livestream gigs and they will be remunerated with a stipend of SGD100 – 300 per livestream gig. Artistes can contact SGMUSO directly to apply for gig funding.
- #FundAHawker (https://give.asia/fundahawker)
In partnership with Hawkers United, the #FundAHawker campaign supports five local hawkers through the purchase of their food and drinks for distribution to our frontline workers. The hawkers are Chon Sing Huat Cooked Food, Grandma Mee Siam, Soon Hock Hokkien Mee, Balqis Favourite Nasi Padang and R.R Indian Food Stall.
Food and drinks purchased through the #FundAHawker campaign will be distributed to our frontliners including healthcare workers, delivery personnel, F&B service providers and social distancing ambassadors etc, to thank them for their hard work in supporting Singaporeans through these challenging times.
