It’s an incredible privilege to be able to speak on behalf of these amazing kids!”
“The Coronavirus is being felt around the world, particularly for children and most vulnerable families, now at even greater risk than before. Around the world our life saving programs that serve these children are threatened as the social and economic impact continues to grow,” said Eric Mason, Chief Marketing and Development Officer at Holt International. “JJ’s been to Mongolia with Holt and knows first-hand the struggles of kids in need, and the impact a small gift can make on the life of a child.
We’re blessed to be partnering with JJ on his ‘Night of Hope’ and know it’s going to bless not just those who tune in for his music, but kids in Mongolia and around the world too.
“Leading his hit songs during the Facebook Live event, such as“Let Them See You,” “Alive In Me,” “What Kind Of Love” and “Rooftops,” Weeks will also perform music from his acclaimed, 2020 EPThe Sound Of Freedom. The new EP features the current radio single and CCM Magazine-premiered title track along with “Choices”and the hopeful anthem, “Days Like These.”“The first time I heard JJ Weeks riff that ol’ sweet song ‘Georgia (On My Mind),’I was hooked on his vocal authenticity,” says Nik Curtis Beal, Music Director, WJTL Lancaster, PA. “I saw him live, bought the tee-shirt and bought into his brand. Over the years, his songs from ‘Count Your Blessings’ to ‘Choices’ have risen up the WJTL charts. His latest high-spirited track, ‘The Sound of Freedom,’is a top contender for any song on the charts right now and moves up again to No. 8 on the WJTL Top 40 this weekend.” Co-written and produced by GRAMMY-nominated, two-time Dove Award-winning “Producer of the Year” Ian Eskelin, “The Sound of Freedom” has been heard nationally on radio stations likeWJTL, as well as KYCC (Stockton,CA), WNFR (Flint, MI), WLJN (Traverse City, MI), WCTL (Erie, PA), KCVO (Columbia, MO) and more.
