Trisha Yearwood Visits New York School to Discuss Music Education
Trisha Yearwood isn't just a performer. She is an advocate for musical legacies, serving as the Grammy Foundation's Ambassador. One of her duties? Talking about the intrinsic value and importance of musical education programs in schools and speaking to young kids about their dreams and aspirations of the musical sort.
Big Frog 104 reports that Yearwood, once a Country Music Hall of Fame tour guide, visited St. Mary's elementary school in Cortland, N.Y., which was her first outing in her new role. With two decades in the business, three Grammys, three CMAs and 19 Top 10 singles under her belt, Yearwood is a more-than-experienced spokesperson for the type of success a musically minded person can achieve. She says, "It still amazes me that I make a living doing what I love to do. I don't ever feel like it's work. I feel grateful and blessed to get to do what I love. And I love, love, love to sing."
Yearwood's appearance at St. Mary's coincides with the long-running Labels For Education program enacted by the Campbell Soup Company. The 37-year-old education initiative helps schools earn sports equipment, art supplies and other valuable resources by collecting soup can labels. Student Jessica Verguss won the national online contest for LFE.
