NZ Music Foundation Has a New Name, Welcoming Lorde as a New Patron
The NZ Music Foundation has changed its name to MusicHelps, and have welcomed a new Patron: Lorde!
Since the charity began in 2012, The NZ Music Foundation have invested in 66 projects, with 42 partners, from Whangarei to Invercargill, all using the power of music to change the lives of over 60,000 New Zealanders in need.
Now they're rebranding to MusicHelps, a name that is more direct, more impactful and speaks to the heart of their core purpose.
They're also announcing that multi award-winning artist Lorde will become their latest patron, joining founding patron Neil Finn. The ‘Greenlight' singer has experienced first-hand the power and impact of music in her life.
"It's an honour to be joining Neil Finn as a Patron of MusicHelps. Since the start of my journey, our local music industry has consistently shown me so much support and compassion, and it's a privilege to be able to help give back," says Lorde.
"Community care is a huge part of what makes our industry the family that it is and utilising the power of music to help as many people as possible is a mission that speaks to me on many levels. I can't wait to get started."
Music Helps are going to continue the important work they started five years ago, developing and supporting projects that use music to change the lives of those who are at-risk, vulnerable or experiencing serious health challenges. They're also going to continue provide world-leading emergency assistance to kiwi music people experiencing illness, distress and hardship.
