What is Music For Good and how do I get involved?

This video will answer that and other questions:

Music For Good is the world’s first ecommerce platform that allows musicians to sell songs directly to their fans and designate half the proceeds to a charity of their choosing. Since the program’s beta release just eight weeks ago, over 50,000 artists around the world have signed up for Music For Good — making it one of the fastest growing philanthropic initiatives in music history.

Where the idea came from

Do you remember Michael Jackson, Lionel Richie and their celebrity friends singing to “We Are The World” to create awareness about poverty in Africa? Who doesn’t, right? Twenty eight years later, that song still has the power to move us to do good in this world.

But we believe philanthropy is not only for the rich and famous — independent and emerging artists can do it too.

With more than 2.7 million artists on our site and with advanced technology in our hands, we realized we had the power to facilitate things for philanthropic artists, especially the independent ones. That’s when Music For Good (#MusicForGood) was born.

We created a platform where musicians, fans and charities can come together, every day, every hour to hear music and support the causes they love. Charity concerts are great, but Music For Good is what artists do the other 364 days of the year.

Music For Good is for musicians

Whether it’s a country band from Tennessee or a hip hop act from Canada, Music For Good offers something for every artist that wants to get involved.

Zac Brown


Southern Ground Artists, the label founded by GRAMMY award-winning country star Zac Brown, already supports the initiative. Zac elected to have his charity, Camp Southern Ground, sign on as a launch partner.

Toby Lightman

Toby Lightman, who has been featured in countless movies and network TV shows, is selling her new single “Holding a Heart” through Music For Good, splitting the proceeds with Half The Sky Movement.
