Leann Rimes Raises Awareness For Homeless Children In America In Her New Music Video!

Thu, August 18, 2011 11:59am EDT by 1 Comment

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!

    Great to see Leann working with such a great organization. StandUp For Kids found me on the streets of San Diego when I was 15 years old. Over the next six years they helped me get through drug addiction, sexual assaults and many of the other things that homeless youth deal with every day. Honestly, I’d likely have been found in a gutter with a needle in my arm if it wasn’t for StandUp.

    Thank you to StandUp For Kids and to Leann Rimes for raising awareness about the 1.5 million homeless youth living in America today.
