The management company behind the UK’s entry at Eurovision 2022 – TaP music have announced they are going to donate their entire BBC consultancy fee to MOAS (Migrant Offshore Aid Station). The money will be used for those affected by the current war in Ukraine.
TaP and BBC Eurovision
For the Eurovision Song Contest 2022, BBC collaborated with the global publishing and management company TaP Music to choose the song and the act to represent the country. According to TaP Music, a lot of artists, both new and well known, expressed their wish to collaborate for Eurovision 2022.
One of the main goals of this selection for TaP Music seems to change the attitude towards the UK entries for Eurovision and make the country proud, especially after some of recent years results. Today (10th March) they announced that Sam Ryder will represent the United Kingdom with ”Space Man”.
What is MOAS?
This organisation is a humanitarian charity designed to bring medical relief and first response services to those impacted by escalating violence and war. MOAS urges neighbouring nations to establish a solid and efficient reception mechanism for those fleeing the violence with full access to the asylum system as needed. If you want to support the Ukrainian people and help MOAS to deploy life-saving services to those in desperate need please donate now at www.moas.eu/donate.
Anna Neville, the global co-ambassador to TaP music has this to say.
The Eurovision Song Contest is a wonderful moment where a large part of Europe come together for a fun evening of music and entertainment. Music has the power to unify people and it has not passed any of us that while we have been on this process such awful and tragic events have continued to unfold in Ukraine. We decided to donate our consultancy fee to MOAS. Due to the incredible work they are doing in Ukraine and other areas affected by war.
