Girls Who Listen is a Black woman-owned non-profit dedicated to supporting future female creatives and executives in the music industry. Throughout the year, Girls Who Listen hosts a series of events such as panels, mingling mixers, songwriting sessions, and compiles an internal networking database for upcoming artists and media professionals who aim to learn more about the music industry.
Pretty Girls Sweat is a Black female-owned brand founded in 2011 and headquartered in Atlanta, GA. This wellness company develops events, content, and products designed to make fitness fun, affordable, and accessible to all women.
“The journey has been long and hard since 2011 when we vowed to develop young leaders through fitness,” said Pretty Girls Sweat Founder Aeshia DeVore Branch in response to the donation. “Monetary support coupled with awareness from Audiomack helps us continue to provide the most digestible health education in communities that don't have access. Like Audiomack, we value the importance of providing a platform for youth to make positive life choices. While the social music site empowers creatives through music, we uplift women who use music as a vehicle to improve their physical and mental health.”
“We have been very fortunate to reach our community through the digital space,” says Girls Who Listen CEO and Founder Kadijat Salawudeen. “However, COVID-19 has affected our plans to conduct in-person events. We’ve had to cancel songwriting sessions, where down payments on venues and event supplies were no longer needed. However, with the assistance of Audiomack’s donation, we'll be able to allocate some of the lost capital into our scholarship fund for students. We'd also like to invest in our programming budget, educational panels, workshops, and informational seminars with music companies and executives.”
“Like Girls Who Listen, Audiomack is constantly finding ways to give back, while supporting the future of the music industry,” adds Salawudeen. “We couldn't have been more grateful for this opportunity!”
