Singer to Speak; Perform Special Song Written Exclusively for Red Ribbon Week in Alabama
Arkansas songstress Debbie Cochran has never given up on her life-long dream, regardless of what obstacles got in her way. She is now putting the power of music to create awareness as she participates in the National Red Ribbon Week, a state-wide initiative to teens about suicide prevention and the dangers of drugs.
With the help of The Arkansas School Boards Association and the Arkansas Health Resources, she will speak to the students and perform a song written just for the cause, Eyewitness. This will take place Wednesday, October 23rd at the University of Arkansas Community College at Batesville (UACCB) from 10am-12pm (2005 White Dr., Batesville, AR).
"I am truly overjoyed to help inspire these teenagers to live a positive lifestyle and make a difference in their lives,” smiles Debbie. “It’s about never giving up on your dreams and to rise above the complications and barriers they may face."
This "Helen Mirren meets Debbie Boone" performer is winning the hearts of radio stations and music fans nationwide. Her latest release, When You're Loving Me, has that sweet sound of classic country and is off her current album, Before We Met The World, which was produced by Grammy nominated Kent Wells (Dolly Parton).
There's no denying that her traditional roots are embedded in her music. With influences like Reba McEntire, Loretta Lynn and Kitty Wells, Debbie portrays a wholesome, 'halo-country' sound that listeners resonate with.
Debbie's story and music is one that has spread smiles and serves as a testament to the vitality of the human spirit. She lives her lyrics everyday when she steps in the studio, writes a new song or hits the center stage and lives up to her motto and her very first single by saying "It’s Never Too Late!"
