Dancing, dubstep violinist Lindsey Stirling, along with the Atlanta Music Project, launched a 60-day fundraiser on Oct. 1 to help underserved children have greater access to musical opportunities.
“Music has always played a very, very important part in my life,” Stirling said in her YouTube clip explaining the fundraiser. “It breaks my heart that not everybody gets that chance to have music lessons or musical instruments to play and more and more schools are cutting programs, and that is why I’ve teamed up with the Atlanta Music Project.”
The fundraiser sells Lindsey Stirling T-shirts, and profits go directly to the Atlanta Music Project, according to the Atlanta Music Project.org.
Stirling is a BYU graduate and a returned LDS missionary. She made her dancing violin debut in the quarterfinals of “America’s Got Talent” in 2010. After the show, she launched her music career on YouTube, where she has more than 3 million subscribers. Stirling returned from a year-long tour in September and is working on songs for a new album, according to her blog.
