NASHVILLE, TN (May 9, 2016) – “One of the country’s most energizing performers” (Rolling Stone Country), Drake White is collaborating with Ford Motor Company Fund in five cities across the U.S. to make a positive impact on the community.
No stranger to giving back through his work with Outnumber Hunger and Feeding America through their partnership with Big Machine Label Group, White is taking his community commitment to a new level by teaming up with Ford in key markets to participate in local service projects. Ford dealers will assist by providing transportation in specific markets and engaging the local community for volunteer needs and much more.
“Even before I had a public voice, giving back to the community has always been very important to me,” said White. “Whether I’m helping one family in my hometown in Alabama raise money for their urgent needs or helping a community with cleanup efforts after a storm, now that I have this platform it is more important to me than ever.”
“Ford, Country music and community service have a long, rich history, dating back to Henry Ford, a big music fan and believer in making the world a better place,” said Yisel Cabrera, community relations manager, Ford Motor Company Fund. “We are excited to join with Drake in fighting hunger, disaster relief, promoting safe driving and building stronger communities.”
White will be making five stops across the country for #LivintheDream By Giving the Dream throughout the summer. Dates are as follows:
May 19 Hartford, CT / Foodshare
June 4 Los Angeles, CA / American Red Cross
July 2 Detroit, MI / Habitat for Humanity
August 14 Dallas, TX / Ford Driving Skills for Life
August 20 Boston, MA / Greater Boston Food Bank

His current single, “Livin’ the Dream” is currently in the Top 40 and rising on the Country charts. He recently made his national TV debut when he performed the tune on TODAY.
