[USPRwire, Thu Jul 30 2009] The Michelle’s Angels Foundation Inc. (MAF) today announced plans to honor the organization’s designated Angel Artists by featuring a musical artist on its website www.MichellesAngels.com each season beginning summer 2009. According to the MAF’s music director, Nashville singer-songwriter Ken Harrell, the first Angel Artist honoree is singer-songwriter Kim Parent, also of Nashville.
“From the time Kim learned of Michelle’s Angels, she has been one of the foundation’s strongest supporters. Kim’s music, laced with deep meanings and hopeful outcomes, together with her highly sought after talents in the recording studio make her an ideal honoree for our inaugural summer 2009 season,” said Herb Knoll, president of the foundation. “We are thrilled to share Kim’s angel voice with everyone.”
The Michelle’s Angels Foundation is not the only group of individuals to recognize what Kim Parent brings to a song. In the studio, Kim’s harmonics have graced recordings by Faith Hill, Time McGraw, JeDee Messina, Reba McEntire, Jessica Andres, Billy Rae Cyrus, Kenny Rogers, Phill Vasser and many others. In concert she has performed with Martina McBride, Rodney Crowell, Lynne Anderson and Tanya Tucker. For the past five years, Kim has been touring with Brooks and Dunn, singing at 65 to 80 concert dates each year. A sampling of Kim’s musical gifts can be heard by going to the MAF’s website juke box.
About Angel Artists and their music--so many people quietly suffer. Many do so without any support or assistance from others. Together with their need for human services, many need help restoring their faith or embracing hope for brighter days or to simply know someone cares. MAF Angel Artists accomplish this and more by making their music available to those who suffer. They share messages of faith, love and hope. They do this without any compensation or remuneration.
Attendees at the recent MAF’s First Annual Angel Artist Appreciation & Celebration Concert held in Nashville on July 17 were able to witness firsthand how 10 Angel Artists touch the minds and hearts of those who suffer life challenges with their gifts of inspired lyrics and musical delivery. Among those so touched was guest of honor, Josette Amsilli, of Nashville who lost her husband to cancer in 2008 and who herself is a cancer victim.
