“Being a part of the collaborative family of FUSE is bedrock for my soul. Speaking up for people who are not able to speak out for themselves has been my passion for many years. I naturally jumped at the chance to join other artists in the LOVE > FEAR benefit event. It’s a privilege to help shine a light on what MUST be viewed as a global concern.”
