Madison Love '17, an alumna of the Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music, was topping charts and writing platinum songs before she even graduated NYU. Having penned such hits as Selena Gomez’s Rare, Lady Gaga’s Sour Candy,” and Ava Max’s Sweet but Psycho all before age 26, it's no wonder she was recently featured in Rolling Stone's 2021 Future of Music issue.
"Love wants to “set a new precedent for what our roles are as songwriters,” she says,... Love had always wanted to be a performer, not a writer, which is why people know her as a “method songwriter”: She throws herself fully into the creation process."
In order to empower young artists to pursue their dreams, Love has created a scholarship fund to support students in the Summer High School Program. The Madison Love Future Fund will provide scholarship funds for one high achieving, high need young artist per year, and additional funds raised will be directed toward top priorities at the Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music. Love is committed to helping NYU Tisch identify and support ambitious, hardworking, curious high school students interested in pursuing a life in the arts, who’s artistic strengths merit exposure to NYU Tisch training, but who’s financial situations would make attending the program unattainable.
