DEEZER ANNOUNCES PARTNERSHIP WITH ROCKCORPS

Deezer, one of the world’s premier music streaming services has partnered with incredible volunteer initiative, RockCorps. The Deezer partnership will offer the best music streaming service to all RockCorps volunteers and fans.

RockCorps inspires young people to volunteer within their local community in exchange for exclusive tickets and amazing offers. Combining the power of music, community and volunteering, RockCorps encourages social change by exposing young people to simple ways they can proactively contribute to their communities.

Reflecting RockCorps’ core ethos of ‘Give, Get Given’, the Deezer partnership will offer 3-month gift accounts to the very deserving RockCorps competition winners who give 4 hours of their time to community service, as well as the ability for all to try unlimited music, anytime, anywhere for 15 days.

The partnership will also see the launch of the RockCorps Radio Channel, featuring tracks from the incredible acts that have appeared at RockCorps gigs over the past 6 years - from Maroon 5 and Lady Gaga to The Smashing Pumpkins and Snoop Dogg. The radio channel will be available on both the Deezer website (http://www.deezer.com/en/radio/radio-3481) and apps, as well as the RockCorps homepage and will play music instantly, directly from the page with no need to open a separate tab or requiring the user to download any software. Every day, RockCorps will also tweet their ‘favourite artist of the day’, with a link to the album or artist page on Deezer allowing RockCorps volunteers and fans to keep up to date with new music and releases from their favourite acts.

Mark Foster, Deezer UK and Ireland MD said “RockCorps uses the power of music to inspire people to volunteer and give to their community so we could not think of a better youth initiative to partner with. We’re thrilled to be able to reward these inspirational young people with the unifying gift of music”.

Stephen Greene, RockCorps Co-Founder & CEO said: “We are excited to announce our partnership with Deezer.  Deezer gets music - it was a natural linkup - like meeting someone for the first time you know will be a friend.   It's a great fit for us to be working to move a generation through music and doing good for your community.  We've worked with so many amazing artists over the years and now Deezer gives us the opportunity to introduce even more people to the RockCorps sound!"
