B-RAiN, a Westminster rapper who helped to organize Westminster's Addiction and Recovery Awareness Musicfest, is competing to play on the bill with Macklemore though the Above the Noise Foundation's Indie Band Contest.

He was excited when he heard the news of his win, which was chosen by popular vote from fans and supporters.

“I lived my whole life taking ... taking things, taking money, taking time, taking hope,” he wrote when contacted by the Times. “I’m so honored to be able to engulf all of what I am now into giving, with my music, with my job, with my family. I’ve truly come to understand that in order for me to stay clean I have to be of service to others.”

“I’m so excited to perform at this event because I feel like it will help our (the addicts who are clean) voices be louder, and more clear. There is so much being said, but no one is hearing it. This is a platform I feel like people will be able to hear,” he said.
