Known for her “big voice and even bigger heart,” (Celeb Mix) rising singer, songwriter and philanthropist Macy Martin stopped by Seacrest Studios at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt (4/2) to chat with new friends, perform new music, play Disney trivia and pass out Tumbles The Bear, the official mascot of her non-profit organization, Macy’s Toy Box.
Martin started Macy’s Toy Box at age seven, faced with the dilemma of needing to part ways with some of her most cherished belongings: her toys. Rather than hold a garage sale, Martin told her parents that they needed to find their way to the hands of a child in need who would truly appreciate them. Thus, Macy’s Toy Box began, donating new and gently used toys to local law enforcement and underprivileged children in her hometown of College Station, TX. After a short while, the cause outgrew Texas and spread throughout the country to later benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, The Make-A-Wish Foundation, Nashville’s Bridge Ministries and numerous children’s hospitals.
In addition to growing her non-profit, the 20-year-old Texan has also been hard at work focusing on her other passion: music. Martin is scheduled to perform her current single, “Take It Now” – dubbed by Her Campus as “the perfect addition to your road trip Spotify playlist” – on Hallmark Channel’s Home & Family on April 20. Embracing the journey of “finding her melody,” (Billboard) Martin is gearing up to release new music in the coming months.
ABOUT MACY MARTIN: With grace and elegance, spunk and determination, recording artist Macy Martin’s Texas upbringing has certainly influenced her sound – especially where it pertains to her voice. Her pure, angelic tone and perfectly controlled vibrato pairs with an energy and power sure to turn heads and hearts. Her years performing at venues, fairs, festivals and events (Miss Texas Organization, Ronald McDonald House, Texas Children’s Hospital, Special Olympics) local to her College Station, Texas home caught the attention of Grammy-nominated producer Kent Wells (Dolly Parton). After a series of successful singles at country radio, Martin broke Top 40 on MusicRow’s prestigious Country Breakout Chart, landing at #37 with single “Heart Sleeve Soul.” Last single “Broke Down” also hit #37 on the chart. Her new single “Take It Now” released to country radio on February 2nd and is available now for streaming and purchase. Despite a hectic schedule that has her traveling the country to promote her music, she also spends time promoting her non-profit, Macy’s Toy Box, which collects new and gently used toys for underprivileged children.http://www.countryschatter.com/2018/04/macy-martin-stopped-by-seacrest-studios-at-monroe-carell-jr-childrens-hospital/NewsPress ReleaseMacy Martin,Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital,Nashville's Bridge Ministries,Seacrest Studios,St. Jude Children's Research Hospital,The Make-A-Wish Foundation,Twitter,Vanderbilt Hospital Nashville
