Little Big Town has teamed up with ACM’s charitable organization Lifting Lives for a special performance on the ACM Awards Sunday, April 1. The group will sing the song “Here’s Hope” in an effort to raise awareness of the Child Hunger Ends Here campaign.
Little Big Town’s Kimberly Schlapman is heavily involved in the ACM Lifting Lives organization. She says, “We are so honored and excited to be a part of the very special Lifting Lives moment to end child hunger on the ACM Awards. We can’t wait!”
ACM New Artist of the Year nominee Hunter Hayes co-wrote “Here’s Hope.”
“My hope is that through music, we can inspire people to get involved and finally put an end to child hunger in our country,” Hunter says.
The ACM has partnered with ConAgra foods to help the public get involved in the fight to end child hunger. Customers can purchase specially marked packages of ConAgra Foods brands such as Healthy Choice and Orville Redenbacher and then enter the eight-digit code found on those boxes at ChildHungerEndsHere.com. For every code entered through August 2012, the equivalent of one meal will be donated to Feeding America.
In return for entering the code, customers will be offered a download of “Here’s Hope” recorded by either Jewel, pop outfit Owl City or British hip-hop artist Jay Sean.
Little Big Town’s performance of “Here’s Hope” will air during the 47th Annual ACM Awards broadcasting live from Las Vegas on Sunday, April 1 at 8 p.m. Eastern time on CBS.
