On the importance of music education, Lights explains that, “It was such an important part of my youth; it was an outlet, a confidant, an escape and something I was very proud of. Without access to instruments growing up I wouldn’t be the same person I am today. MusiCounts puts the power of music education in the hands of young people who would otherwise go without it.

The limited edition of the customer favourite Ultra Facial Cream featuring an original illustration by Lights on the label will be available at Kiehl’s stores nationwide in September, with 100% of net profits donated to MusiCounts.
