The country songstress broke down in tears on August 17 after meeting a handful of homeless children who will star in the video for her new song ‘Give.’
Leann Rimes got extremely emotional on the set of her video shoot for her new single “Give” yesterday, August 17, after meeting and hearing the touching story of a particular homeless boy, who will star in the video. We love that she’s representing a wonderful cause!
Leann, 28, will feature a group of homeless children in her music video, which she hopes will raise awareness of the Stand Up For Kids organization, which helps less-fortunate children across America find homes and shelters.
“Wow, what an eye opening and moving experience I’m having today,” Leann tweeted yesterday, “(I cried) just once and it was from a kid saying he felt lonely & he had no friends. My heart broke…” It must be so tough to see these children and hear their stories, but what Leann is doing for them is inspiring!
“That’s a wrap on a very moving video shoot! I’m blessed to have experienced these kids. They have truly changed my life!!!!!!” she tweeted. “The kids said it’s the best time they’ve had all year! That’s such a compliment. What a joyful day! They all sang w/ (with) me! It’s for my video for ‘Give’ and we are raising awareness for standupforkids.org and children’s homelessness in America.”
We’re excited to see the finish project!
