Kygo raises more than $110,000 for LGBTQ charities with UTOPIA live show
Earlier this summer, Kygo made his highly anticipated return to NYC during Pride Month to share a new live concept called UTOPIA. The event benefitted a number of LGBTQ charities and organizations, and with performances by Kiiara, Cirque du Soleil, JHART, Danny Verde, and more, the show proved to be one of the electronic highlights of the summer. The Jacob Javits Center was buzzing with energy as Kygo and company raised more than $110,000 in donations.
“My vision was to create an event that celebrated our community and give back in a big way,” said show producer Jake Resnicow.
Kygo also debuted his posthumous Whitney Houston hit, “Higher Love” featuring at NYC Pride 20 years after the musical icon performed at the same event. “It was an honor to be a part of it,” said Kygo, “Love is love.” See a clip from UTOPIA below.
