Crown Royal Honors Black Music With Unityfest

As the nation was at an inflection point in culture last Summer, Crown Royal Regal Apple launched a project to fill media spaces with the work of some of today’s most impactful Black artists, giving everyone access to art that inspires necessary change. In a testament to culture, Crown Apple used their voice to support by capturing the work of four street artists to cement these impermanent works as everlasting stories by celebrating their imaging of resistance and beauty.

This month, in honor of Black Music Appreciation Month and Juneteenth Unityfest, Crown Royal Regal Apple continued their mission to amplify Black artists in partnership with singer and songwriter, Lucky Daye.

Last week, the Juneteenth Unityfest brought together people of all backgrounds for a day to commemorate Juneteenth and Black culture, with music performances, storytelling, inspiring remarks and more. With his own personal connection to the arts, Lucky Daye performed during Unityfest and honored the works of Crown Royal’s Black Art Preservation Project. Click here for more on it.
