    Singer Fiona Apple Pledges Royalties to Refugees

    The songwriter has pledged to donate all her 2019 and 2020 earnings from her hit 1996 single Criminal to a fund called While They Wait, which provides legal assistance to asylum-seekers coming to the United States. Writing on Tumblr, Apple said she’d long been upset over the government’s criminalization of migrants, and had been “gutted with frustration” trying to decide how to help.

    How much money will that be? Although Apple didn’t specify the amount, she says Criminal is her “most requested song” by film or television productions.
