Aaron has been a featured artist in many of Music Doing Goodís Spotlight Partner shows, including multiple performances at the Howell Opera House. Over the past two years, Music Doing Good has worked with the Livingston Arts Council in Howell, Michigan, to help raise funds to restore the beautiful and historic Opera House, and Aaron was one of the artists who performed a concert for the Opera Houseís 130th Anniversary. The show helped raise $19,700 that evening alone, and helped invigorate the Opera House and the Howell community to raise over $200,000 to support the building. Music Doing Good Spotlight Partner concerts do more than just raise money from ticket sales, they help inspire and motivate non-profits like the Howell Opera House through continued outreach and support.
