Grammy-nominated, singer/songwriter, Aloe Blacc, who is known for major hits such as “I Need A Dollar”, “The Man”, and “Wake Me Up”, pledged early in his career to use his music for positive social transformation.

Aloe refers to his style of music as thematic, calling it "A.I.M." which stands for affirmation, inspiration, and motivation.

A recipient of RIAA diamond certification, his song “WAKE ME UP” with Avicii, has reached over 2 Billion streams on Spotify and YouTube respectively. Aloe is currently working on his next musical projects with a focus on amplifying the mission of non-profit organizations.

In addition to music, Aloe is the founder of Major Inc, a biotech company focused on preventing future pandemics and infection from disease. With the help of accomplished PhD scientists, the company has conducted promising research to identify medicinal candidates that block viruses from cellular binding, entry, and replication.
