CMT – Just weeks before the platinum-selling performer jet-sets to the land down under for his critically acclaimed Speed of Now World Tour, Keith Urban gave back to the Nashville community.
The singer has made a whopping donation to four Nashville charities in an effort to show his appreciation for their “inspiring” work.
The GRAMMY Award-winner distributed a generous gift of $250,000 to the Music Health Alliance, the Nashville Food Project, Thistle Farms, and to Vanderbilt Breast Cancer Research.
The singer-songwriter distributed $100,000 to the Music Health Alliance, a nonprofit that provides medical resources to members of the music industry.
According to their official website, their vision is to create a “safe and confidential” place for the music community to have reliable healthcare and insurance.
“Keith Urban’s contribution and passion for Music Health Alliance helps our organization, and the people who work tirelessly on our behalf, to provide funds for life-saving healthcare advocacy and resources that serve vulnerable music makers facing healthcare challenges,” said Tatum Hauck Allsep, the Founder and CEO of Music Alliance.
The vocalist also visited The Nashville Food Project, an organization that fights hunger.
Urban placed $50,000 towards their mission to bring people together and alleviate hunger in the surrounding area.
Meanwhile, Urban presented the same contribution to the Thistle Farms. The Nashville-based association helps survivors overcome and heal from sex trafficking, addiction, and prostitution.
