Country singer Lynn Bryant is at it again, this time with a tool belt, lending a helping hand for an episode of ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition that will be airing Sunday, October 30th (check local listings). Bryant took to the project, with the aide of the show’s producers, as part of her many philanthropic efforts focused on aiding those in need, which in this case turned out to be a family from Maryland.
Bryant, who runs The Nancy Ferro Learning For Life Foundation, a non-profit charity that provides a nurturing after-school environment for elementary age children, helped the Extreme Makeover crew to put the finishing touches on the house they were building. She assisted with hanging light fixtures and cleaning the tent area for the final shoot and presentation to the new owners. She also donated her signature “Dream Big, Love Bigger” t-shirts for the family’s eight children as well as copies of her current CD Woman Enough. A portion of the proceeds from the single and the sale of the t-shirts go towards The Nancy Ferro Learning For Life Foundation.
“I was happy to lend a hand,” said Bryant. “For me my time and passion is spent making music and helping others, but anytime you can combine the two, at least for me, it’s an ideal situation.”
Days later upon a visit from the family’s new friends from Masters Plumbing, who also helped on the ‘makeover,’ workers found the mother wearing Bryant’s signature T-shirt. As it turns out the mother of these eight children loved the T-shirts so much that she had been borrowing them from all of her kids. Needless to say, Bryant forwarded several more to the family.
Bryant’s current CD Woman Enough, spotlights her strong, dramatic voice. It has been called a powerful recording that focuses on the positive aspects of life while reinforcing the singer’s mission to help those in need.
