Make Music Day was introduced to singer/songwriter Gloria Stanley in 2017 by invitation from Georgia Music Industry Association (GMIA) out of Atlanta, GA. Gloria incorporated Macon, GA (her hometown) in 2018 because this was her residency, and put Macon on Make Music Day map around the world.
She is definitely musically inclined, a person of abundance faith and a philanthropist who cares about the well-being of people at home and abroad.
In 2018, Gloria received a $2,000 Community Challenge Grant from the Community Foundation of Central GA to grow Make Music Day Macon for 2019. June 21, 2019, Macon celebrated “Macon Downtown Boogie” in the community park on the corner of Cherry and 3rd Street. And she composed and debuted the first ever Make Music Day theme song titled “Shake, Shake, Shake It Up,” recorded at Joey Stuckey’s Shadow Sound Studio at 473 3rd Street, Macon.
Music is universal, “BE THE GOOD.” “Stand Up and Clap Your Hands” for a purpose in Love and Harmony.
She is so grateful for the continuous endearing Partnership from Macon Arts Alliance, Visit Macon, United Way of Central GA, Community Foundation of Central GA, Macon Chamber of Commerce, The Knight Foundation, The Otis Redding Foundation, Bibb County School District, First Baptist Church and Center Hill Baptist Church.
