Linkin Park Powers State Department Effort
To provide electricity access for the more than 1.3 billion people in the world without it, the U.S. government is partnering with a group that knows a little something about wattage: Linkin Park.
All six members of the Grammy-winning rock band, which has supported efforts at expanding energy access in the past, met with State Department energy officials on Friday.
“Linkin Park described their efforts to support energy access for all through their Power the World initiative and the non-profit Music for Relief,” reads a department press release. “The band expressed their commitment to supporting and inspiring efforts at international development, disaster relief, and particularly, energy access.”
