On August 12th Music Rising (www.musicrising.org) supported Notes for Notes in Detroit, a non profit organization that designs, equips and staffs after-school recording studios offering youth the opportunity to explore, create and record music for free. Music Rising was honored with a Diamond Record. Music Rising’s support will provide professional instruments and full recording facility opportunities for Detroit youth, a city which had declared bankruptcy. Photo credit: Mitch Albom Charities.
