At a time when the world is reeling under coronavirus outbreak, music streaming giants such as Amazon Music, Facebook, SiriusXM, Pandora, Spotify, Tidal and YouTube Music have pledged to contribute to the MusiCares’ COVID-19 Relief Fund, to fund for music industry workers.

The programme, when set up, promised to provide monetary support for people in the industry affected by cancellation of music events and loss of various work opportunities.
