AceShowbiz - Halsey has launched a new initiative to help black artists get ahead.
The pop star, who has been on the frontlines of the Black Lives Matter protests in Los Angeles in recent weeks, condemning police brutality, debuted the Black Creators Funding Initiative on Thursday, June 11.
"We are launching a fund to help Black creators and amplify their art, voice and perspective," the "Without Me" singer explains. "This ongoing initiative will be entirely funded by the Halsey team. If you're an artist, poet, graphic designer, writer, film maker, music producer, journalist, make up artist or creator of any kind, we want to see your work and want to help achieve your goals."
"In addition to funds, the artists will be promoted on my socials to help launch their platforms and we will help provide resources, information and points of contact for as many people as we can. We will be announcing the first gifting recipients on June 18. We hope to continue this initiative throughout the years to come. #BLACKCREATORSFUND."
