We haven’t written a ‘positive coronavirus news’ roundup in a little while, but here’s something that would be in it if we did.
British industry body the BPI has distributed a second round of donations from labels and streaming services to charities and organisations in the UK.
£270k was divided between Help Musicians, Nordoff Robbins, the Music Venue Trust and the Music Managers Forum Rebuild Project (nearly £60k each) and Music Support (nearly £30k).
The latest round follows a £1.25m donations distribution earlier this year, and a £100k donation from Amazon Music for the Music Venues Trust. The three major labels’ UK subsidiaries along with Cherry Red, Demon Music Group, The Brit Awards, Amazon Music, PPL and YouTube Music are the key donors.
