Hunter Hayes teamed up with 10 campers from the ACM Lifting Lives Music Camp Tuesday night to perform at a special event at the 2015 Special Olympics World Games in Los Angeles. The group sang “Heart to Heart,” a song they wrote with songwriter Terry McBride earlier this summer in Nashville. Hunter rounded out the set with a few of his own hits.The performance took place at the Family’s Picnic in the Park at Grand Park LA, a private event for Special Olympics athletes and their families.
“It was an honor to support such a fantastic cause and get to perform for all of these athletes and their families,” Hunter says. “I had the opportunity to meet the ACM Lifting Lives music campers earlier this summer, and it reminded me how pure and powerful music can be. Being part of this event tonight and getting to perform with them again was an experience I won’t forget.”
