Matt Sorum is best known for his career drumming in bands such as The Cult, Gun-N-Roses and Velvet Revolver, and in 2012, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. While these are truly outstanding accomplishments, Abolish Slavery Coalition is honoring Matt Sorum for ongoing work with his nonprofit organization called Global Sound Lodge http://globalsoundlodge.org/
Global Sound Lodge was created by Matt to bring a music relief program to children who are at risk of becoming slaves all over the world; in Brazil, Haiti, Thailand, or the United States.
Recently, Global Sound Lodge teamed up with Abolish Slavery Coalition to arrange a musical instrument donation to The Shade Tree Shelter in Las Vegas, Nevada, which provides safety and services for rescued slaves. Matt brought guitars and was able to effectively utilize the universal language of peace, love and music and connected with these frightened and displaced children.
Global Sound Lodge is Matt saying to the world, “Help us do this together. Come with us on this journey. We’re going to take this idea out to the rest of the world and help. Let’s trade weapons for guitars. Please support Global Sound Lodge. Music Can Save the World!”
