#TheShowMustBePaused as industry supports Black Out Tuesday
#TheShowMustBePaused as industry supports Black Out Tuesday, just like HAIL does.
The music industry’s response is coalescing around a ‘Black Out Tuesday‘ event today, which is being described as “a day to disconnect from work and reconnect with our community”. Several labels have already backed the plan. “In solidarity with our Black colleagues, artists and loved ones across the country who are reeling from the senseless taking of another innocent Black life, Capitol Music Group will not be conducting any business on Tuesday, June 2 in observance of ‘Black Out Tuesday’,” announced Capitol, for example.
The ‘this is not day off’ message resounds clearly: it’s a chance to step back from regular duties (well, as regular as they can be during a pandemic lockdown), to think not just about what’s happening around the world, and to take action. To do something.
At HAIL we also support this, so today, please switch off everything and think about all of us in the music industry.
the HAIL team.
