Singer/songwriter/comedian Geoff Erwin is excited to perform another virtual fundraising concert – but this time to raise money for The Code Green Campaign which provides awareness and education on mental health in first responders.
“It’s time we call a code alert on our mental health. Breaking the silence on mental health stigma in public safety by sharing the stories of those who’ve been there.”
The concert will feature new music and custom video of Los Angeles at this unique time in history. Tune in for a super fun night and an opportunity to give back to those who are risking their lives to save ours.
Erwin will be premiering several songs from his original album, including the song “What’s Right” at the virtual benefit concert.

The event hasn’t even aired and they’ve raised $10,000 for the cause.
Join Geoff Erwin tomorrow (June 20) at 5 pm PT / 8 pm ET in his creative effort to make a difference and illuminate the world through the joys of music, laughter, and fun by attending his virtual tour with the intention to continue to generate donations to benefit charitable organizations.

“I’ve been working on a folk-pop album over the last 6 months,” said Erwin, who is also executive producing the live performance event. “We were heading into Final Mixing right when the COVID pandemic hit.”
Even with all that was happening, Erwin wanted to give back to the community. “That put a major crimp in our plans, and yours too… I was feeling kind of helpless. I heard a story on NPR’s ‘This American Life,’ where an EMT in New York had to handle 13 COVID-related Cardiac Arrests in one 16-hour shift. None of them survived. I can’t imagine what that must be like.
He continued: “This guy’s out there risking his life every day, gearing up for each and every case he sees, and what am I doing? That’s when I realized how much I wanted to put together benefit concerts.”
“We all need to release some of this tension that’s been building up—this is my recipe,” enthused Erwin.
