Jo Dee Messina Donating Song Profits to Tennessee School


Jo Dee Messina


Country singer Jo Dee Messina is donating the proceeds from her new song to help a school in Nashville, Tennessee.

Jo Dee Messina has recorded "Carry Me" to raise cash for the Holy Trinity Montessori's $2.3 million (GBP1.4 million) extension project, which aims to expand the education facility to accommodate more young students.

Jo Dee Messina is offering up the track for $1 (62 pence) and is also planning to stage a series of shows to raise extra funds.

She says, "This isn't about just a cause I believe in or the latest celebrity charity. I want this campaign to show that even in a time when people feel there is little hope, that there is hope and dreams still do come true. I chose (the song) because we need people from all over to carry us with their support to make this dream come true."

"If you contribute one dollar, you can help make a dream come true. 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."
