CURB RECORDS/NASHVILLE artist JO DEE MESSINA has launched the “A MILLION DOORS” campaign to help raise $2.3 million for a non-profit school in NASHVILLE, the HOLY TRINITY MONTESSORI. MESSINA has recorded a new song, “Carry Me,” which is available for a donation of one dollar at amilliondoors.com. “Carry Me” will be available through JULY 15th, with all funds going directly to the school for the construction of a new schoolhouse.
“If you contribute one dollar, you can help make a dream come true,” said MESSINA. “I tour around the country and spend a great deal of time listening to people’s stories. Lately it seems that with all the sadness in the news--wars, politics, economy, etc.--people need a little restoration of hope.”
CURB RECORDS President MIKE CURB allowed JO DEE to release the song independently and Christian songwriter JARED ANDERSON has waived his publishing royalties, allowing all funds raised to go to the HOLY TRINITY school. JO DEE is also planning to raise funds for the school through a series of live concerts.
JO DEE and HOLY TRINITY MONTESSORI school head KATE RILEY are looking to raise $2.3 million dollars to build the 6000 square-foot school for students up through third grade, and possibly up to fifth, offering them an affordable, hands-on education.
