From Avicii’s manager Ash Pournouri
As a manager and executive producer for world class music acts, I am frequently traveling the globe. During my many visits to the US, I was shocked to discover that in “the land of prosperity” there are millions of people who go hungry every day. It was simply staggering, especially to a European who grew up hearing about America as the land of wealth and plenty. I do a lot of business in the United States and felt compelled to do something that would make a big impact on people’s lives. At the same time, I wanted to ensure that our objectives were being met and the money was going directly to the cause. I didn’t want to just sign a check or do a one-off event.
I eventually came up with the idea of a massive charity tour that would both engage people of all ages as well as generate enough moneyfor the donation to effect as many people as possible. Thus, the One Million Dollar Tour for Hunger was born – aka House (Music) forHunger with the goal of using music to bring people together to give back as well as educate and mobilize the younger generation who might not be aware or inclined to act. In the process I also want to educate people of what our music is really about – love, unity and happiness.
