EmilyThinks.net: First off, I’ve read a lot about your charity involvement. Including taking part in activities for The Trevor Project and Party with a Purpose. I think that’s really admirable. What first sparked
your interest in philanthropy? And what organizations do you support?
Mitch Grassi: We’ve always been a group interested in “giving back.” Trevor Project was the first one we took interest in, because bullying has become so prevalent over the past few years, and each day, kids are finding new ways to emotionally/physically hurt others. Being someone who was mildly bullied in grade school, I know how much it hurts and how lonely it can be to be different, especially for youth in the LGBTQ community. We’ve also participated in Not For Sale, which aims to end human trafficking and slavery.
EmilyThinks.net: It’s super fun that your albums include both
original and cover songs, is there a song you’d like cover but
haven’t yet? How do you decide which songs to cover?
EmilyThinks.net: What is the most meaningful song you have had the
chance to sing/record? Why?
EmilyThinks.net: Your covers have had millions upon millions of views.
Did you ever think you’d become such a big hit?
