Taylor Swift, Scotty McCreery, Lady Antebellum and Martina McBride are among the stars lending their support to a new viral video sweeping the country. The 30-minute film shines a light on Ugandan militant rebel Joseph Kony, whose organization is apparently abducting children from their homes and turning them into soldiers for his army.
The video, Kony 2012, has gotten millions of views in just a few days. Taylor apparently wrote a message of support for the project on her arm at a recent concert in Brisbane, Australia. Scotty, Lady A and Martina are among the stars who have tweeted their support.
Kony 2012 was produced by the Invisible Children organization. Its goal is not to celebrate Kony, but to raise support for his arrest and set a precedent for international justice.
