Encino, CA (June 24, 2014) – ACM Lifting Lives Music Camp is in session this week in Nashville, Tenn. with campers from around the country participating in a week of activities and excursions around Music City.  The residential camp has the dual purpose of studying Williams syndrome while providing music enrichment through performance and education.

Reigning ACM Vocal Group of the Year The Band Perry lead campers in a songwriting session, creating “Bright Eyes,” an original song based on campers’ personal experiences and inspirations.

The camp is a partnership between ACM Lifting Lives and Vanderbilt Kennedy Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities.  This year marks the 10th anniversary of Vanderbilt Kennedy Center’s Music Camp and the 5th year that ACM Lifting Lives has been involved.
