Support: Help Melvin Davis, Detroit’s Soul Ambassador, with Medical Cost

Posted by & filed under Advocacy, Community Partner, OUTREACH.

Music heals in times of trouble – for six decades, the Detroit Soul Ambassador Melvin Davis has provided music and memories to help us all. Now we can help Melvin. During the heart of the pandemic, Melvin soldiered through a debilitating case of COVID pneumonia only to begin another fight against Leukemia. While he is currently on the mend, Melvin needs our help with the medical expenses that have resulted from these battles.

has performed on the Blue Bird stage at our Salvaging Sound exhibit at Detroit Historical Museum…

He was our first interviewee for our Sonic Solidarity podcast

AND recorded the lead song of our first 7” release – a cover of Death’s “Politicians In My Eyes” for the Crimetown podcast!
