Jimmy Wayne’s introduction to music came in the form of a guitar he received through the Christmas Angel Tree Program when he was eight-years-old – a random act of kindness from a caring person. The guitar, the first gift he ever received, ignited Wayne’s love of music. That love took Wayne down the path of becoming a musician, and eventually, an award winning country music star.
“None of this would have happened had it not been for a guitar.” said Wayne. “So I’m in debt and making sure that I do my part in raising awareness for a program that helped me out when I had nothing.”
To “do his part” Wayne wrote a song that tells of the enormous impact Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program has on the kids in need who receive gifts from strangers. Wayne hopes people will hear Paper Angels and be inspired to participate as gift givers in the Angel Tree Program.
The singer wound up doing a lot more than writing a hit song. In the middle of his career, Wayne decided to take a break from music and use his stardom to help nurture foster children in ways that go beyond lyrics.
