Billie Eilish has been announced as a co-chair for a new music education campaign launched by the Grammy Museum.

In a statement, Grammy Museum President and CEO Michael Sticka says that the initiative, dubbed the Campaign for Music Education, aims to “democratize music education by expanding our reach into underserved communities where access to our museum and educational programs could make a huge impact and ultimately foster the next generation of music’s creators and leaders.”

“I was able to visit the Grammy Museum a lot when I was growing up,” Eilish shares. “We saw so many amazing artists perform that I never would’ve been able to see otherwise.”

“I love the exhibits and the whole experience,” the “bad guy” artist adds. “I am excited to help kids who are the same age as I was to have free access to this magical place and all that it has to offer in music education and experiences.”

Other co-chairs include Dua Lipa, Bruno Mars, Shawn Mendes and Rosalía.
