RECORDING ARTIST LYNN BRYANT
LENDS A HELPING HAND TO ABC’S EXTREME MAKEOVER: HOME EDITION
Episode to air Sunday, October
Country singer Lynn Bryant
is at it again, this time with a tool belt, lending a helping hand
for an episode of ABC’s Extreme
Makeover: Home Edition that will be airing
Sunday, October 30th (check local listings). Bryant took
to the project, with the aide of the show’s producers, as
part of her many philanthropic efforts focused on aiding those in
need, which in this case turned out to be a family from Maryland.
Bryant, who runs The Nancy Ferro
Learning For Life Foundation, a non-profit charity that provides
a nurturing after-school environment for elementary age children,
helped the Extreme Makeover crew
to put the finishing touches on the house they were building. She
assisted with hanging light fixtures and cleaning the tent area
for the final shoot and presentation to the new owners. She also
donated her signature “Dream
Big, Love Bigger” t-shirts for the family’s eight
children as well as copies of her current CD Woman
Enough. A portion of the proceeds from the single and the
sale of the t-shirts go towards The
Nancy Ferro Learning For Life Foundation.
was happy to lend a hand,” said Bryant. “For
me my time and passion is spent making music and helping others,
but anytime you can combine the two, at least for me, it’s
an ideal situation.”
Days later upon a visit from the family’s new friends from
Masters Plumbing, who also helped on the ‘makeover,’
workers found the mother wearing Bryant’s signature T-shirt.
As it turns out the mother of these eight children loved the T-shirts
so much that she had been borrowing them from all of her kids. Needless
to say, Bryant forwarded several more to the family.
Bryant’s current CD Woman Enough,
spotlights her strong, dramatic voice. It has been called a powerful
recording that focuses on the positive aspects of life while reinforcing
the singer’s mission to help those in need.
