San Antonio, Texas (PressExposure) July 29, 2009 -- The Michelleâs Angels Foundation Inc. (MAF) today announced plans to honor the organizationâs designated Angel Artists by featuring a musical artist on its website http://www.MichellesAngels.com each season beginning summer 2009. According to the MAFâs music director, Nashville singer-songwriter Ken Harrell, the first Angel Artist honoree is singer-songwriter Kim Parent, also of Nashville.
âFrom the time Kim learned of Michelleâs Angels, she has been one of the foundationâs strongest supporters. Kimâs 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,â said Herb Knoll, president of the foundation. âWe are thrilled to share Kimâs angel voice with everyone.â
The Michelleâs Angels Foundation is not the only group of individuals to recognize what Kim Parent brings to a song. In the studio, Kimâs 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 Kimâs musical gifts can be heard by going to the MAFâs 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 MAFâs 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.
