Babyface and Kelly Clarkson Pledge $30,000 to Music Education

This week, 13X Grammy-winner Babyface and music education non-profit Music Will went on The Kelly Clarkson Show to share the power of music education. 

The appearance happened after a school visit Babyface did in his hometown of Indianapolis, Indiana where he met with 2nd to 6th graders, as well as high schoolers to do a Q&A with students and an instrument donation. 

In 2023, Babyface was named a Music Will’s 2023 Benefit Honoree for his work in music education and now he and Music Will are furthering their commitment to creating accessible music education across the United States. Together, they are bringing music programs and training teachers on music education curriculum in 20 schools across Indianapolis. 

Kelly Clarkson surprised Babyface and Music Will by donating $10,000 to the non-profit, which resulted in Babyface and Music Will founder Dave Wish to contribute as well, bringing the total to $30,000 towards the non-profit.
