Martina McBride has one of the biggest hearts in country music. She has been actively involved with the YWCA, ACM Lifting Lives, Stand Up to Cancer and the National Domestic Violence Hotline.
And she has once again stepped up to make a difference for the residents of Guatemala’s Covenant House International—a home for young girls who have been orphaned, abandoned or victims of abuse and human trafficking—by providing them with care and music programs.
“Having visited Covenant House earlier this year and seen firsthand the great work they do for teens, I’m excited about this new project,” she says. “I know as well as anyone how much music can change lives. It makes me happy to think music is going to be introduced to a group of young girls who can truly benefit from it.”
Martina and her charitable organization, Team Martina, are hosting the “Everlasting Music For Kids” fundraising event on the website Crowdrise. So far, fans have donated $25,000 to provide care, classes and musical instruments to the girls, ages 9-15.
