TEMECULA, Calif.--()--Since 2007, Music For Mankind® founder Kelly Moore has donated profits from his concerts to the United Nations World Food Program and other organizations supplying hunger and disaster relief. In this time he has helped feed over 40,000 people.
“Music For Mankind® - How Can We Help”
Now based in southern California, former Vermont resident Moore realized that some portion from each concert could help those struggling daily to survive. He built his tours of the northeast US based on this template. As his work gained momentum and recognition, he discovered new ways to help.
World Food Program USA honored him as Community Delegate of World Food Program USA. In 2008 he was invited to join them on a week-long field trip to the mountains of Nicaragua to observe their work and gain new insights about his own part in this effort. In 2009 he joined them again, this time to the Andes of Peru, where he spent a week with the Chechuans, an indigenous tribe over 35,000 years in existence.
For this effort, Moore created a lecture series titled “Music For Mankind® - How Can We Help,” discussing his work, the work of the World Food Program, and presenting a documentary film titled “Nicaragua – On The Ground” that he produced about his travels.
In 2009 Moore released his third CD “Silently Hoping,” dedicated to the children of Nicaragua. The CD garnered national and international acclaim, rising to #37 on radio airplay charts, and airing in ten countries.
Other projects include the Music For Mankind® Community Charity Drive raising food for local food cupboards. He added motorcycle rallies, and singing the National Anthem at sporting events to shed more light on his endeavors.
“Your work to end hunger, here in Vermont and around the world, is truly inspiring,” said Martha Carey, Manager, Manchester Food Cupboard, Manchester, Vermont. “Your support and friendship to CFC is a blessing to us and everyone we serve.”
In addition to his talents as composer, musician, filmmaker, Mr. Moore is an accomplished vocalist, actor, and dancer. After three years of performing concerts with his six-piece band, he created a new show called “Give My Regards To Broadway” a collection of Broadway favorites, which he performs as solo vocalist and dancer, with piano accompaniment. His next performance will be Saturday, March 9 for the San Diego Women’s Club.
