Music on a Mission was first held in March 2021to respond to the thousands of live event professionals, tour crews, songwriters, producers, engineers, performers, and support staff left unemployed as the COVID-19 pandemic devastated the music community. Upwards of 17,000 people bought tickets, with over 850,000 supporter page views, raising over $2 million, which was distributed directly back into the hands of those in need in the music industry.
