Recovery advocate and platinum-selling recording artist, Macklemore, gave a moving acceptance speech after receiving the Stevie Ray Vaughan Award at the 2019 Music Cares Concert for Recovery. Macklemore’s speech is a compelling and articulate personal account of his reasons for going public with his own journey and the integral part the 12-Step program has played in his recovery. The speech is also a call to action inviting us all to confront this urgent public health crisis.
Lorinda, Barb and Joanna attended the concert as guests and were touched to get a special shout-out.
What a privilege it was to be a guest at the 2019 MusiCares® event, and see Macklemore honoured with this award for his courage to recover out loud through his music, his service, and his commitment to helping others.
