Stars Lend A Hand at ACM Lifting Lives Camp

ACM Lifting Lives Music Camp is in session this week in Nashville, with campers from across the country participating in a week of activities throughout Music City. The residential camp has the dual purpose of studying Williams syndrome while providing music enrichment through performance and education. It is a partnership between ACM’s Lifting Lives program and the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities.
