Country Artist, Neal McCoy, Partners with ChildFund International to Help Create Successful Environments for Children Globally
Richmond, VA – July 23, 2012 – Neal McCoy has partnered with ChildFund International to help children across the world become leaders who can bring positive changes for those all around them. McCoy is proud to join ChildFund International’s LIVE! team with Thompson Square, David Archuleta, PFR (Pray for Rain), and County Throw Down.
McCoy is thrilled about the opportunity to personally sponsor a child from the Philippines through ChildFund International: “I believe that every child has incredible potential. So I am excited to be partnering with ChildFund International, which has more than 70 years of experience serving children who live in poverty. Through its sponsorship program, ChildFund ensures that children have access to education, clean water and health care. Working together, we can change childhoods. And that’s the first step toward creating a better world.”
ChildFund International works in 31 countries, serving approximately 13.5 million children, to create the environments children need to thrive. ChildFund International was a perfect fit for McCoy because of his long-time involvement with children through his own charity. He has seen the impact that someone can have on a child’s life and is thankful for the opportunity to personally sponsor a child through ChildFund International.
Neal McCoy is an East Texas native who has made his mark on country music. He is a family man, with a sense of humor, who understands the perseverance it takes to be successful in the entertainment industry. However, his extensive list of accomplishments is not what McCoy prides himself on. He is a proud, supportive father and loving husband. Also later this year, McCoy and his family will also participate in the 17th annual fundraising event for his personal charity, the East Texas Angel Network.
McCoy’s long-awaited Blaster Records debut album, XII, was released on March 6, 2012. The album was produced by close friends Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert, along with noted guitar player, Brent Rowan, and is McCoy’s first album in five years. It is the first album that Blake and Miranda have produced together.
