Let Het Music Play


On the 22nd and 23rd of February 2024, the Donne Foundation embarked on an extraordinary journey to set a Guinness World Record™ for the “Longest Acoustic Music Live-Streamed Concert”.

BUT THERE WAS A TWIST: We decided to do it by playing ONLY music by women and non-binary composers and songwriters. Over 26 electrifying hours, we created history while championing for gender equality. https://donne-uk.org/let-her-music-play/

Here you can watch the performance of @lauremeloy1067 who was one of the many artists who supported this incredible initiative for a more equal, diverse and inclusive music industry! #LetHerMusicPlay
