Darius Rucker Makes ‘Music From The Heart’ [VIDEO]

One of the most touching performances of the 2011 ACM awards was Darius Rucker’s song ‘Music From The Heart.’  Since the song hasn’t been released as a single, many people have asked me many questions about this inspirational performance.  Darius performed the song with twenty-five people from the Vanderbilt Music Camp Choir during the 46th annual Academy of Country Music Awards.  The performance actually benefited the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center’s program of music education and research for adults with autism and other developmental disabilities.  This project was just one of many programs sponsored by the ACM’s Lifting Lives campaign.

Not only did these talented people sing on national television, they actually had a hand in writing the song last summer with ACM Lifting Lives Music Camp songwriters Brett James and Chris Young.

The Vanderbilt Kennedy Center continues to take donations. Please invite your family and friends to donate to the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center by dialing 1-888-9-LIFTING or donate through VKC Giving. All proceeds benefit the mission of facilitating discoveries and best practices that make positive differences in the lives of persons with developmental disabilities and their families.
