Music has the power to heal! ACM Lifting Lives® is the philanthropic arm of the Academy of Country Music dedicated to improving lives through the power of music. ACM Lifting Lives is a weeklong camp open to the musically talented with developmental disabilities from around the country. Throughout the week, campers get to team up with some of country’s hottest musicians to sing, write music and even perform at the Grand Ole Opry… like RaeLynn! (You may recognize her from The Voice!)

One camper, Clancey Hopper, who was diagnosed with Williams Syndrome at a young age, tells us just how incredible this experience has been for her. Always loving music, Clancey’s parents found the perfect camp just for her when she was 16-years-old. Clancey attended the ACM Lifting Lives Camp for 7 years. Now at age 27 they helped her land her dream job! See more about how music is literally changing lives!
