BTS Donates Their “Dynamite” MV Outfits To Grammy Awards Charity Auction
The group has donated their pastel outfits from their record-breaking music video to the upcoming Grammy Week charity auction held each year by the Grammy Museum and MusiCares (the philanthropic arm of the Recording Academy, which organizes the annual Grammy Awards).
The outfits up for auction will include the T-shirts, hats, sneakers, pants, and shirts worn during the climactic dance sequence towards the end of the music video, and Julien’s Auctions “conservatively” estimated that the set will sell for at least $20,000 to $40,000.
According to executive director Martin Nolan, “This is the first time that BTS has ever sold any costumes.”
MusiCares is a non-profit organization that helps fund health and welfare programs for musicians in need, including those who have been adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on the industry.
Darren Julien, the president and CEO of Julien’s Auctions, remarked, “We can’t think of a better way to highlight the work of MusiCares than with this ‘Dynamite’ contribution from BTS, whose groundbreaking music and uplifting messages of hope and optimism are what the world needs now. We thank BTS for their generous donation of their special one-of-a-kind items whose proceeds will benefit this most urgent initiative.”
Last year, BTS donated a set of custom-made microphones used and signed by the members to the Grammy Week 2020 charity auction, where they sold for a cool $83,200.
This year’s auction will take place on January 29, 2021, two days before the 2021 Grammy Awards—where BTS has been nominated for their first award in the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance category.
