#IRespectMusic takes the fight for America’s Music Fairness Act to NYC from iHeartRadio

iHeart Media







(Hypebot) – Blake Morgan, Dionne Warwick, Sam Moore and MusicFirst took part in a bit of performance art yesterday that brought the fight for the American Music Fairness Act to the steps of streaming giant iHeartRadio’s New York headquarters .

The American Music Fairness Act would finally compensate artists fairly when their music is played on the radio. Currently, the United States is the only major country that does not pay artists a royalty on broadcast performances.

The Recording Academy, RIAA MusicFirst, NMPA are among the many music industry organizations supporting the legislation that is currently before Congress.

Show your support by signing the I Respect Music petition.

Here are some photos from Monday’s protest.
