Posted on July 6th, 2015 by

#Growns we wanted to get you in the know about a very worthy cause that two-time Grammy award-winning singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer Timothy Bloom is involved with. Make Room’s intimate ³Concerts for the 1st² feature top musical talent performing in living rooms across America. The campaign kicked off May 1 in Los Angeles with a living room performance by Carly Rae Jepsen. Each month, Make Room releases documentary footage and Concerts for the 1st footage to spotlight a family struggling to afford rent.

Check out “Pressure Off” from one of our ’80s favorites– Duran Duran, featuring Janelle Monae and Nile Rodgers. Admittedly, this one may need to grow on us, but we’re giddy that the group is still up and at ’em and not resting on its ’80s laurels. Tell us what you think.
