ATLANTA, Aug. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- All proceeds from upcoming single to benefit the lifesaving mission of St. Jude -
Award-winning gospel artist Jacky Clark Chisholm is excited to announce her support of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital©. On August 8, 2017, Chisholm is scheduled to release her upcoming single "Cover Me" with all proceeds benefitting St. Jude, which is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
In an effort to further the belief of late entertainer, philanthropist, and St. Jude founder Danny Thomas that "no child should die in the dawn of life," Chisholm is committed to supporting Danny's dream of advancing cures, research, and prevention of childhood cancer.
Chisholm serves as an ambassador for St. Jude Sunday of Hope, which leads church congregations nationwide in donating to St. Jude via their Sunday offering services. Her achievements in gospel music include Grammy, Stellar, Dove and NAACP Image awards. In addition to being a philanthropist and artist, she is also a licensed nurse. "Being a nurse for over 40 years, I have witnessed firsthand how devastating cancer can be for any adult," Chisholm says. "But when we see how babies and innocent children have to suffer from such a dreadful issue, it becomes personally heartbreaking." It is these experiences, in particular, that inspired her to support St. Jude.
Thanks to supporters like Chisholm, no family receives a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
