Pearl Jam will be teaming up with composer, lyricist, and actor Lin-Manuel Miranda for a one night only conversation in which they will discuss “their artistic inspirations and why they use their microphones for activism.” The virtual event will take place on December 16 at 8:30 p.m. EST and it will “raise money to engage the Georgia Latino community in advance of the January 5th runoff election.”
Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder commented:
“Georgia came through for America and now it’s time for America to come through for Georgia. We — along with millions of others — are fans of Lin-Manuel for both his art and his activism and we are excited to work together to support progressive organizations Latino Victory Project, Latino Community Fund of Georgia, and the Hispanic Federation. We hope you will join us live on December 16th as we talk music, art, and activism.”
“I’ve long admired Pearl Jam’s music and commitment to advocacy — and their music has made an impact on me since I was a teenager. I haven’t met them yet, but have wanted to for a long time. We thought it would be fun to meet in front of our fans while raising awareness and resources to make sure we get out the vote for the Georgia runoff election.”
Comedian Wayne Brady will host the event and tickets can be found HERE.
