BMG is blazing new territory by bringing social justice causes to the music industry. The group recently strategically aligned with Transform-Nations.org, which creates awareness, inspiration and action on global social issues. BMG is generating an ASK for Action to support the health and wellness of veterans and youth at the upcoming event.
“San Diego is home to our military, veterans and inner-city kids who face challenges around their wellbeing every day,” said Buddha Music Group Founder Marc Devoe. “As a veteran myself, I am just thrilled that BMG artists can raise awareness for these at-risk communities while also raising the vibes at the Belly Up.”
