MACON, GA- Online musical instrument and equipment marketplace Reverb announced that some of the biggest names in music have come together to sell a collection of autographed and/or donated microphones to benefit the next generation of musicians. The Official One Mic Reverb Shop will launch on Giving Tuesday, December 1, with all proceeds going to ten youth music education programs, including the Otis Redding Foundation.
“Reverb Gives has been a huge supporter of the Foundation providing our young musicians with instruments for their in-home use,” says Karla Redding-Andrews, VP/Executive Director of the Otis Redding Foundation.
The Official One Mic Reverb Shop shop will feature nearly 20 microphones from artists including Paul McCartney, John Legend, The Weeknd, Mavis Staples, HAIM, Bruno Mars, Leon Bridges, Black Pumas, and more. According to Bridges, who signed a Shure SM7B microphone for the shop, “Youth music education is important because it gives kids a strong sense of identity. I can say that for me personally, too.”
