Lincoln Listens First

In late 2020, Lincoln launched an initiative designed to elevate and celebrate Black voices with its “Lincoln Listens First” campaign. The brand harnessed the power of music to highlight the values that Lincoln shares with its customers.

The Campaign:

As people around the world adjusted to life during a global pandemic, a movement for racial justice gained momentum and cultural relevance became part of the daily global conversation about equity. As part of the “Lincoln Listens First” campaign, jazz virtuoso Jon Batiste hosted a livestream concert that highlighted the contributions made by Black artists to American and world music by weaving songs, stories, and histories together into a powerful, educational, and engaging musical journey.

Empathic, intentional, and culturally relevant, this campaign showcased an impactful partnership and allowed Lincoln to show their commitment to upholding the values held by their customers. 

Watch the video below to see Jon Batiste talk to Angela Rye about the role of music in his life and his role in the world of music.
