Virginia To Vegas – aka Derik Baker – is taking the message of his latest single “Betterman” a step further for a good cause.
The indie-pop hitmaker is doing his part to help give back to the frontline workers during COVID-19 by creating a custom Instagram filter (open on your phone) that encourages fans to perform acts of kindness, spreading the message around their networks.
For each person that shares the challenge, Baker will donate one dollar to The Red Cross COVID-19 Relief Efforts. TikTok users can share the hashtag #BetterManChallenge and find out what act of kindness they’re given.
“Betterman” is the lead single from Virginia To Vegas’ new EP A Constant State of Improvement, released on February 28, 2020. The album is available to stream everywhere.
Rebecca here- a Niagara native now living and breathing music in Toronto. As a Ryerson journalism graduate and a self-proclaimed music junkie, I’ve been fortunate enough to write for brands like Andpop and Really Records, and now Canadian Beats. My tastes in music are all over the map- Stevie Wonder to Fall Out Boy; Miranda Lambert to One Direction – which is why I spend almost as much money on concerts as I do on rent. But I have no regrets. If you like my ramblings you can also find me on Twitter (RMattina5) & Instagram (rmattina93).
