Scooter Braun to Receive Humanitarian Award & Give Keynote at Music Biz 2018 (Nashville,TN.)


Scooter Braun to Receive Humanitarian Award and Give Keynote Interview on His Philanthropic Mission at Music Biz 2018 in Nashville
Scooter Braun will receive the Music Business Association’s (Music Biz) prestigious Harry Chapin Memorial Humanitarian Award at the Music Biz 2018 conference on May 17, 2018 at the Omni Nashville Hotel. Braun will be honored at the conference’s Awards Luncheon, sponsored by BuzzAngle Musicfor his outstanding charitable efforts, and will participate in a keynote interview focusing on his philanthropic mission.

Braun has instilled philanthropy as a cornerstone of the SB Projects philosophy, designing a charitable element for each company initiative executed at the intersection of music, film, television, technology, brands, and culture. In 2017, Braun organized the One Love Manchester benefit concert following a terrorist attack at Manchester Arena during an Ariana Grande concert. The benefit featured a star-studded lineup that included Grande, Justin Bieber, The Black Eyed Peas, Coldplay, Miley Cyrus, Marcus Mumford, Niall Horan, Little Mix, Katy Perry, Take That, Imogen Heap, Pharrell Williams, Robbie Williams, and Liam Gallagher. One Love Manchester raised over $22 million for the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund supporting concert victims and their families. Three months later, Braun organized Hand in Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Relief telethon. The hour-long broadcast, containing A-list celebrities including George Clooney, Oprah Winfrey, Beyoncé, and Robert De Niro to name a few, raised more than $62 million to aid victims of Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma. It was later announced that those affected by Hurricane Maria would also benefit from the event.
Scooter’s charitable efforts are the gold standard in philanthropy, providing substantial aid to victims of the Manchester terrorist attacks and Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria in this year alone,” said James Donio, President of Music Biz. “His dedication to philanthropy in every aspect of his business endeavors honors the giving spirit of our award namesake Harry Chapin and makes him fantastic company for previous honorees such as Paula Abdul, the T.J. Martell Foundation, Martina McBride, Dee Snider, Annie Lennox, Melissa Etheridge, Norman Lear, Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, Hilary Rosen, Michael Jackson, Rock the Vote, Hands Across America, Live Aid, and Chapin himself.
