Legendary country music star George Strait just happens to be a humanitarian and he is using that talent for good. A limited-edition George Strait art piece is set to go on sale just in time for the holiday season. Strait put the news out on one of his social media pages earlier today, Nov. 23.
Earlier this year George signed limited edition art from @Soundwaves_Art created by coloring & shaping the sound waves of #AmarilloByMorning to support @SweetRelief. There are only a few left, so they’re re-releasing them for the holiday season. Get yours: https://t.co/2OtVNSYJ1s pic.twitter.com/H00QxWgaTW— George Strait (@GeorgeStrait) November 23, 2020
“Earlier this year George signed limited edition art from @Soundwaves_Art created by coloring and shaping the sound waves of #AmarilloByMorning to support @sweetrelief,” the tweet states. “There are only a few left so they are re-releasing them for the holiday season.”
The tweet then lists a web address where Strait fans can find the signed works of art.
Strait Assists Music Industry Relief Initiative
According to their website, Sweet Relief Musicians Fund provides financial assistance to all types of career musicians and music industry workers who are struggling to make ends meet while facing illness, disability or age-related problems.
“In other words, healing musicians in need,” the site says of its mission. “We all have received so much out of music, it’s time to give a little back.”
On its social media pages, Sweet Relief says it strives to help working musicians during the pandemic.
Many months into the global pandemic and there is still very little indication as to when live music will come back. If you’re a musician or music industry worker and would like to apply to our COVID-19 Fund, or if you’d like to donate, please visit https://t.co/vvtP5hMeKj pic.twitter.com/bjiQ2GrD4X— Sweet Relief (@SweetRelief) July 30, 2020
