The holiday season is all about bring joy and peace to the hearts of all, so a group of country stars used their vocal talents to spread a message of happiness to patients at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital through a charitable rendition of the track, “Angels Among Us.”
Some of the hottest rising stars in the genre bound their voices together for the sake of healing to create their own version of the spiritual song. Artists like Jillian Jacqueline, Scotty McCreery, Carly Pearce, Hunter Hayes, Sara Evans, Temecula Road, Tegan Marie, Lucy Hale, CB30 and RaeLynn all sang their hearts out for the kids who receive treatment at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital every day.
The track was made with the help of those singers, as well as Radio Disney Country, to contribute back to those patients receiving treatment at St. Jude. Radio Disney Country even gave St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital a $25,000 donation to go along with the recording.
“Angels Among Us” was originally recorded by country supergroup Alabama. In an effort to get the country music genre more involved in giving back to St. Jude, the band’s lead singer, Randy Owen, founded Country Cares for St. Jude Kids in 1989. Since then, Country Cares radio partners have raised $750 million in pledges for St. Jude.
Another massive campaign supporting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is the creation of the ‘This Shirt Saves Lives’ t-shirt. At least 80 country artists sported these garments to raise awareness for the hospital, in which the shirts can only be acquired through signing up to give a $20 monthly donation to St. Jude.
