The group donated their pastel outfits from their record breaking music video to the upcoming Grammy Week charity auction held annually by the Grammy Museum and MusiCares (the philanthropic arm of the Recording Academy that organizes the annual Grammy Awards).
Outfits up for auction include the t-shirts, hats, sneakers, pants, and shirts worn towards the end of the music video during the climatic dance sequence, and Julien’s auctions “conservatively” estimated the set to sell for at least $ 20,000 gets to $ 40,000.
According to managing director Martin Nolan, “this is the first time BTS has sold costumes.”
MusiCares is a nonprofit that funds health and welfare programs for musicians in need, including those affected by the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the industry.
Darren Julien, President and CEO of Julien’s Auctions, commented, “We can’t think of a better way to highlight the work of MusiCares than with this ‘Dynamite’ contribution from BTS, its groundbreaking music and uplifting messages of hope and optimism are what the world needs now. We thank BTS for the generous donation of their special unique items, the proceeds of which will benefit this most urgent initiative. ”
Last year, BTS donated a set of bespoke microphones that were used and signed by members for the Grammy Week 2020 charity auction, where they were sold for a cool $ 83,200.
This year’s auction is on January 29, 2021, two days before the 2021 Grammy Awards – where BTS was nominated for her first award in the Best Pop Duo / Group Performance category.
