"Over the past few weeks, we have witnessed heartwarming acts of solidarity and kindness," says Eric Boyko, President, Co-founder, and CEO of Stingray. "It was a given that Stingray had to do its part for those whose routines are disrupted by being thrown into close quarters for weeks, especially families with young children. One only has to witness Italians singing in solidarity from their balconies to understand the healing power of music. By offering the Stingray Karaoke, Stingray Qello, and Stingray Classica apps free for the next month, we want to give individuals and families under lockdown moments of joy and levity in these times of anxiety."
