Encino, CA (June 18, 2018) – The 9th Annual ACM Lifting Lives® Music Camp is in session this week in Nashville, Tenn. with campers from around the country participating in a week of activities and excursions around Music City. The residential camp has the dual purpose of studying Williams syndrome while providing music enrichment through performance and education.
On Friday, ACM nominated country artist Cassadee Pope dropped by the Seacrest Studios where she performed her single, “Take You Home” for the campers and participated in a Q&A on-air for the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt.
Later that evening, ACM New Female Vocalist nominee Danielle Bradbery dropped by the famous Wildhorse Saloon to spend time with the campers, participated in a meet and greet and shared stories from the first day of camp.
The camp is a partnership between ACM Lifting Lives and Vanderbilt Kennedy Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities. For more information on ACM Lifting Lives, please visit www.ACMLiftingLives.org.
