"God Bless the Children "

Inspired by the actions of The Heart Gallery, country artist Wayne Warner gathered a choir of musical all-stars consisting of Taylor Swift, Kevin Sharp, the Statler Brothers’ Jimmy Fortune, Elvis’ legendary Jordanaires, and many more to join him in a song and video project aimed at bringing attention to foster care and adoption needs.

Directed by award-winning John Lloyd Miller, the video became one of the most successful PSAs for the Dave Thomas Foundation and went on to encourage many to become new adoptive parents. The immense success of this project is what prompted Warner to establish The Melodical Hearts Foundation through which he hoped to continue using the power of positive music and video to promote adoption and foster care awareness.
