Big kudos to Vance Joy! He just launched a new charity, Vance Joy Ukuleles For Kids. The goal is to bring music to children in hospitals, starting on September 1st for National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. He's teamed up with Kala Brand Music Co. and MyMusicRx to make this happen.
It's such a great idea, to help children forget about their problems for a while and learn to play a musical instrument. Vance Joy will also be releasing instructional videos so kids can see exactly how to perform his songs. I bet other musicians will make videos as well to help out the cause.
