CMA Pledges $100,000 To Music Health Alliance

The CMA has pledged $100,000 to Music Health Alliance (MHA) to further aid the nonprofit in their mission of providing free healthcare advocacy and essential support to those within the music industry.

“The CMA called us the morning of the tornadoes and have been in constant contact throughout the unfolding of the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on our industry,” says Tatum Allsep, MHA Founder/Chief Executive Officer. “The CMA truly recognizes that we have all been tasked with finding solutions to face these challenges and navigate this uncharted territory. Music Health Alliance is immeasurably grateful for our CMA partnership because together we are stronger. The CMA’s support today ensures that our team of advocates can continue to provide direct, free services as well as immediate financial relief to the most vulnerable in our industry at this critical time.”

Founded by Tatum Allsep and based in Nashville, MHA has provided free healthcare advocacy and support to more than 11,000 music industry members in the non-profit’s first seven years by providing access to lifesaving transplants, medicine, mental health resources, end of life care and many other necessary services.

“Music Health Alliance’s critical work and advocacy is essential to supporting those within our entire music industry,” says Sarah Trahern, CMA Chief Executive Officer. “While we planned this pledge well before the current COVID-19 pandemic, today it is even more important that we aid MHA and all that they do. In Middle Tennessee, our community is still recovering from the devastating tornadoes that ripped through the region just three weeks ago. From lifesaving medical services and mental health assistance to offering resources and advice to those who have recently lost or do not have healthcare coverage, the support MHA provides is enormous and I personally thank Tatum and her devoted team for their crucial work.”
