With countless concert tours and music festivals postponed or canceled due to coronavirus, artists are losing out on millions of dollars. As a result, their support teams are reeling as well.
Despite this, Grammy-winning singer and multi-instrumentalist H.E.R. decided to give financial support to everyone on her team. The supreme act of kindness was first revealed via Instagram by recording artist Ajanee, a supporting vocalist for the “Best Part” singer.
“Today This BOSS just blessed her whole team with some COVID 19 funds to help us through the next few months,” Ajanee wrote in the Tuesday post. “I’m not talking about a lil bag for groceries! SHE JUST BLESSED EVERY LAST ONE OF US! THANK YOU sis!”
