Darius Rucker and 25 ACM Lifting Lives music campers with developmental disabilities joined Rucker on the ACM Awards stage to perform “Music from the Heart.” One of Sunday night’s most moving performances, the ACM Awards shared a moment with the audience and had many people recognize the value of music to all, especially those on stage for the presentation.
The special performance supported the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center, as fans were asked to call or text to donate after the performance. The Center makes a positive difference in lives of those individuals with developmental disabilities as well as their families.
As the ongoing tradition of helping the fans of the music, the ACM Lifting Lives is the philanthropic arm of the Academy of Country Music. It is dedicated to improving lives through the power of music and each year a new organization or charity is brought to the attention of the audience to support.
I love Darius Rucker, he is a fantastic performer. I saw him in concert and he is just incredible and you can see why. Click here for video.
