Jewel has been named as a performer during the 48th Annual Academy of Country Music awards, in partnership with ACM Lifting Lives to help raise awareness for ConAgra Foods’ Child Hunger Ends Here campaign. Jewel will perform a live mash-up of her hit “Hands” combined with “Fill a Heart,” an original song written by singer-songwriter Tori Kelly.
Kelly, who wrote “Fill A Heart” for the Child Hunger Ends Here campaign to bring the story of hunger to life, will introduce Jewel’s performance to the audience. This marks the fifth consecutive year of performances that have highlighted worthy causes and provided support on behalf of their beneficiaries during the live awards telecast.
The 48th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards will be broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday (April 7) beginning at 8 p.m. ET.
“I’m so honored to perform this year’s ACM Lifting Lives moment and support ConAgra Foods’ Child Hunger Ends Here campaign. It’s an important cause I hold near and dear to my heart, and this is a wonderful way to give back and raise awareness. Tori wrote such a beautiful song, and I hope it serves as a wakeup call to everyone about how widespread a problem this is in the United States,” said Jewel.
“The Academy has been dedicated to improving lives through the power of music for forty years, and this is the fifth year we’ve included an ACM Lifting Lives moment in the ACM Awards. We are proud to partner once again with ConAgra Foods to bring together a memorable performance to viewers at home, and remind them about some serious issues that Americans face on a daily basis,” said Hannah Martin, Manager, ACM Lifting Lives. “It’s an honor to have Jewel and Tori contribute their talents to this cause, and to help raise awareness for the nearly 17 million children who live in food insecure homes today.”
