Superfly Books All-Star ‘Small Business Live,’ Benefit for Minority-Owned Companies

Billboard

“Three and a-half million small businesses are currently at risk of permanent closure due to COVID-19, with a disproportionate number of them being minority-owned,” said Rich Goodstone, co-founder of Superfly in a statement. “We look forward to raising the profile of this issue by showcasing amazing music performances and the stories of small businesses across America that urgently need our support.”

All proceeds from the show will be donated to the Accion Opportunity Fund, which has been working towards creating economic opportunity for all since 1994, providing nearly 90% of their loans to small businesses founded by people of color, as well as supporting immigrant-owned and women-owned businesses since its foundation. Viewers will also be encouraged to donate via a text code that will be revealed later; fans can also donate on Superfly’s site before and after the livestream through June 26.
