Vance Joy partners with Kala and MyMusicRx to deliver Ukuleles and how to video lessons throughout Children’s hospitals across America.
A selection of hospitals have already opted into this donation, with the ukuleles and lessons delivered in September 2018 for National Childhood Cancer Awareness month. Vance Joy himself featured in the short videos teaching the children how to play simple songs on Ukulele. The songs include his break-out single ‘Riptide’, and ‘Saturday Sun’. Kala a long-time partner of Vance Joy donated the plastic ukuleles (hospital sanitary friendly) to encourage the children to watch the videos and learn to play. MyMusicRx hosted the lessons on, and managed hospital opt-ins through their national network of children’s hospitals.
