“Mental Health has, unfortunately, claimed the lives of too many and in recent years has become more rampant across the industry. Here at MusiCares, we’ve seen time and time again how struggles with mental health can negatively impact someone’s life. That is why we’re proud to collaborate with the Amy Winehouse Foundation to not only honor Amy and her incredible life and career but also help those who are suffering from this devastating disease,” says Laura Segura, Executive Director of MusiCares.
“The proceeds from this auction will allow MusiCares, the leading music charity, to strengthen its support of music people working to improve their mental health. We are here to help the people behind the music and we couldn’t be any more proud of this endeavor.”
