PHILADELPHIA, PA — The Ladies Who Rock 4 A Cause Music Festival, which took place on September 9, 2023, defied Mother Nature’s plans as it moved indoors to provide festival-goers with a cool and dry environment amidst impending storms.

Mr. Jones spoke about the Recording Academy and the work of MusicCares, emphasizing how their and the LWR4AC’s missions impact the community with music at its core. He excited the crowd and graciously introduced Sharon Lia and the Sharon Lia Band, the festival’s founder.

The festival drew attendees from far and wide, with Recording Academy Chapter Members traveling from locations as diverse as Philadelphia, New York, and California.
