BTS & Big Hit Entertainment Donate $1 Million to Crew Nation

BTS and management company Big Hit Entertainment have donated $1 million to Crew Nation, Live Nation’s charitable effort to live show staff impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, according to Variety.

“This is one of the largest artist donations that has been raised for the Crew Nation fund since its conception,” an announcement to the publication read.

“If it weren’t for COVID-19, we would have been happily touring across the world with many of our live concert crews by now,” said the K-pop superstars in a statement. “We are aware that a lot of communities need help due to COVID-19, and we wanted to support the music industry crews by making a donation. We hope to meet again on stage very soon.”

The generous notions comes just weeks after BTS and Big Hit Entertainment donated $1 million to Black Lives Matter.
