ACADEMY TAPS ADAMS FOR ADVOCACY

Yolanda Adams will join songwriter Sue Ennis as Co-Chair of the Recording Academy's National Advocacy Committee that works to determine specific policy positions of the Academy.

Adams recently testified at a congressional hearing on intellectual property and participated in the Academy's seventh annual District Advocacy Day in August.

The Advocacy Committee will build on the work of the Recording Academy's "Summer of Advocacy" initiative and the recent achievements by creators, including securing important provisions in the CARES Act by championing legislation that ensures individual creators, as well as small and medium-sized music businesses, including those that are minority-owned, receive the support they need.

"We've seen first-hand how music has the power to influence meaningful change, and we're confident the Advocacy Committee's wide breadth of backgrounds and perspectives provide a unique opportunity to build on the Academy's successful efforts this summer in the fight for creators' rights," said Harvey Mason Jr., Chair and Interim President/CEO of the Recording Academy.

Among the legislation the Advocacy Committee is championing is the HITS Act, Mixed Earner Pandemic Unemployment Assistance Act, RESTART Act and Save Our Stages Act.
