It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Let’s welcome the return of 12 Days of GRiZMAS as the funky artist himself introduces several charitable events leading up to GRiZMAS. Born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, GRiZ may travel the world playing music for thousands of fans but he never forgets where he came from. As a thank you for being a crucial part of building him & his career, GRiZ holds 12 days of charitable events in Downtown Detroit where he gives 100% of the proceeds towards increasing access to music education in the Detroit Public Schools.
So on that note, grab your Santa hats, grab your friends, and head to Detroit to spend some quality time with the funkiest crew of them all, both GRiZ and his team, as they deck the streets of Detroit with Christmas joy.
