COMPASSION INTERNATIONAL head of Artist & Radio Relations MIKE SEVERSON said: “We have taken several of these artists on COMPASSION trips to see the work being done to rescue children from poverty and give them hope. Every artist upon return wanted to do something relevant to make a direct impact on the lives of the world’s most vulnerable. As we began to talk about long term strategies, there was an overwhelming consensus to put their passion and talent to immediate use in a way that will not only help those in critical need, but also raise awareness of that need. That’s what this show is all about.”
