Singer And Songwriter Dwayne Kirkland Uses His Talents to Raise Funds for COVID-19 Survivors
The COVID-19 global pandemic affected numerous lives as it swept across the world. It cost people their jobs, their safety, their chance to take new opportunities, and even their lives.
People who have contracted the virus are some of the most affected. Not only do they have to battle for their lives, but they also have to worry about their funds so that they can keep their treatments going.
Survivors have the same problem as well.
Dwayne Kirkland, who is better known as his stage name “D KIRK KV,” realized how the pandemic is affecting people all around the world–even survivors. Because of this pandemic, he wasn’t able to perform in concert.
So to reclaim his time under the spotlight and help others in the process, KIRK performed virtual concerts on social media to raise funds for COVID-19 survivors.
Because of his talent and compassion, the virtual concerts led to KIRK releasing several single record-hit songs, and his music videos getting 80,000 streams from his hit song, My Type.

In fact, KIRK got the nickname “Mixer of R&B” because of how vibrant his music sounds. KIRK continues to produce music that influences and draws the attention of thousands of fans.
