The Melodical Hearts Foundation is a 501(c)(3) founded by Nashville recording artist Wayne Warner. The mission of Melodical Hearts is to impact the issues our society is facing through “Music That Matters”. Melodical Hearts musical projects have brought together some of country music’s biggest stars to shine light on important societal issues. Artists who have contributed include Taylor Swift, Reba McEntire, Dolly Parton, Pam Tillis, Linda Davis, Kevin Sharp, Bryan White, Jimmy Fortune, The Jordanaires, Aaron & Thea Tippin and many more.
"Music That Matters: Epidemic X" is the Melodical Hearts Foundation’s latest song/video project which focuses on the drug and alcohol epidemic that is killing our kids and tearing through communities at a disturbing speed. Drug-related deaths have more than doubled since the early 1980s. There are more deaths, illness, and disabilities from substance abuse than from any other preventable health condition. Today, one in four deaths is attributable to alcohol, tobacco, and illicit drug use. On average every 12 seconds someone dies due to drug abuse, alcohol abuse or drunk driving related traffic accidents.
The video below, featuring the song Black And White Rainbows, is a tribute to all those who have been affected by this epidemic.
The Melodical Hearts Foundation produced the project Epidemic X to bring awareness to the drug and alcohol epidemic. We would like to have every single middle school, high school and college student see this video, this year! If we can get them to just think twice before taking drugs/alcohol or getting behind the wheel under the influence, thousands of lives could be saved. If you are a parent or a school administrator/counselor and would like to use this video or song in your efforts to educate about the dangers of drugs and alcohol, we will be happy to provide you with a high quality copy for your use. Simply write to Juanita Lee at firstname.lastname@example.org
