ABOUT MUSIC WILL**Since Music Will was founded in 2002, its commitment to children’s education has remained steadfast while the population it serves has grown exponentially. It is now the largest non-profit music program in U.S. public schools. With a vision that music education should be as diverse as the people it serves, the organization rebranded in 2022 with its new name, reflecting service to kids of all ages, across all genres of music.
**Each of this year’s honorees will also be expanding Music Will’s programming in local schools — Babyface will be focused on launching programs in his hometown of Indianapolis while Tom Morello has split his 20 schools between Chicago and LA, and Idina Menzel will be splitting between schools in NY and LA.
**Music Will’s annual benefit events have continually attracted an exciting range of top artists. Past honorees have included Bonnie Raitt, Smokey Robinson, Elvis Costello, Warren Haynes, Usher, Steven Van Zandt, Mavis Staples, Joan Jett with performances from Lady Gaga, Bruce Springsteen, Alice Cooper, Darlene Love, Carlos Santana, Yo-Yo Ma and more.
