Former Governor Releases Benefit Album for Music Education
Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee teamed up with his musical friends to compile an album to help the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) Foundation's Wanna Play Fund.
The brand new, full-length album entitled I Wanna Play!: An Album To Put Musical Instruments Into The Hands Of Every Child In America is set for release on October 26.
Joining the political talk show host and part-time bass player in this collaborative effort to support music education are platinum recording artist and songwriter Aaron Tippin and well-known music industry executive and producer James Stroud.
In order to emphasize the importance of make all kinds of music, the CD project - with featuring performances by George Jones, Ronnie Milsap, Neil Sedaka and more - is a compilation of various sounds from diverse creative influences.
While research shows that kids who are involved in music do better in school and in life, the NAMM Foundation's Wanna Play Fund provides instruments to less fortunate children who might not otherwise be able to afford a musical instrument and learn to play. Huckabee says that "it's a dream come true for me to be a part of this and will help to make dreams come true for young hopefuls."
I Wanna Play!: An Album To Put Musical Instruments Into The Hands Of Every Child In America will be available in all major retail and digital outlets including iTunes and Amazon. To learn more about the album and the NAMM Foundation's Wanna Play Fund, visit www.wannaplaycd.org.
