Words matter: Using voice for purpose (ft. Nathan Hartono)

Singaporean singer-songwriter Nathan Hartono and Becky Yeung, Warner Music's regional head of brand partnerships, talk about how artists are eager to lend their voice to brands that are communicating messages that matter these days. From charity events to opening up about his own struggles with mental health in a bid to destigmatize conversations around the topic, Hartono will discuess projects he was involved with in 2020 and why Amazon, United for Global Mental Health and Riot Games were amongst his most enjoyable partnerships.
