Music Aid launched in 1998 with support from some of the biggest names in music and media at an event attended by over 100,000 people in central London. USA Today described this as “one of the most important new launches in music and media” and awarded musicaid.org Website Of The Year Award. Since then Music Aid has worked with The United Nations, the BBC, Net Aid, the Live Earth event and many other events, organizations and partner to support good causes.
