About the Partnership

The Eyes & Ears Agency helped Charlie Burg organize an innovative way to promote his new single, titled “Channel Orange In Your Living Room”, while simultaneously supporting the needs of his local New York Community during the pandemic. The Eyes & Ears Agency facilitated a donation-based virtual meet and greet with his fans. This unique and intimate experience ultimately strengthened Burg’s relationship with his audience, while offering an opportunity to educate them on a cause and organization close to his heart. The virtual meet and greet raised funds in support of City Harvest’s ‘Skip Lunch Fight Hunger’ campaign, and helped the organization move towards their goal of rescuing 20 million pounds of food to meet increased needs during the pandemic.

This social impact campaign saw three days of virtual meet and greets where Burg spent an hour with 10-20 fans each day on zoom sharing inspiration behind his favorite songs, answering questions about upcoming music releases, discussing City Harvest’s work, and if they were lucky…getting a private acoustic performance. This experience reminded us of the power of connectivity, brought Burg even closer to his fans, and got them more excited for his upcoming single release!
