Global animal welfare nonprofit organization World Animal Protection is pleased to announce Grammy award-winning singer, songwriter, producer, musician, dancer, choreographer, actress, activist, and philanthropist, Mýa, as its first US Celebrity Ambassador.
Mýa’s values and passion for animal welfare closely align with World Animal Protection’s mission to move the world to protect animals.

“It’s an honor to represent an organization whose mission resonates with my soul, and I feel so passionate about. I am fortunate to be able to use my platform to raise awareness and encourage my fans, followers, and the general public to educate themselves on the cruel treatment of animals and how we can end their needless suffering,” says Mýa.
