Country Music Artists Join Efforts of Global Humanitarian Organization World Vision

 Use Your Voice: Do Good campaign gains new artists

(Nashville, Tenn. – Sept. 8, 2011)  Global humanitarian organization World Vision has announced the addition of several Country music artists to its growing list of supporters in the United States and around the world. 

The most recent round of artists to join the World Vision efforts are: Attwater, Carter’s Chord, Jason Crabb, Sarah Darling, Lainey Edwards, LoCash Cowboys and Gary Morris.  Since 2009, World Vision has become an active sponsor at the CMA Music Festival and increased its presence within the Country music community through its Use Your Voice: Do Good campaign.  The campaign has already achieved success within the Gospel and Contemporary Christian markets with more than 900,000 sponsorships of children in need.

Artists in partnership with World Vision use their voices on the road and elsewhere to encourage fans to join them in speaking out on behalf of those around the world whose voices are not heard: the poor, the marginalized and the oppressed.  Among the diverse roster of acts already committed to the World Vision cause are: Terri Clark, Patty Griffin, The Isaacs, Sarah McLachlan, PawnShop kings, Kenny Rogers, Jordyn Shellhart, Ricky Skaggs, Chuck Wicks and Wynonna.  Together, these and many other artists and fans have sponsored nearly one million children over the last 23 years.

World Vision Artists are humanitarian advocates who mobilize and educate their fans about the desperate need of millions of children and families worldwide.  Because of their strong voice among a crucial audience, World Vision Artists play a vital role in supporting World Vision’s efforts to make a difference and influence change around the world.
