“I thought I told you to wait in the truck,” the country music queen yelled back, as attendees howled with approval!
Indeed, there was a lot of love at Sunday night’s concert, a fine blend of tunes and talk. Thousands cheered as Dolly sang signature songs like, “9 to 5,” but they also clapped nonstop when she discussed her Imagination Library literacy program. Started in the mid-90s in Tennessee, her non-profit, inspired by her late father, has grown into a global program that provides millions of books to children.
Giving back isn’t exclusive to celebrities. Many of my psychic consultation clients desire to foster more good in our world too. During several recent discussions with entrepreneurs, I’ve intuitively picked up on their interests in cause marketing, a business model designed to provide a product or service, while earmarking a portion of profits to support a charity or philanthropic effort. Consumers often align with this concept, as they can buy what they need and help a cause at the same time.
With countless opportunities, we can all participate in ways to champion a stronger sense of humanity. Doing so, it’s bound to make the heart literally sing, as Dolly knows firsthand.
Given the heartfelt exchange between artist and audience, Dolly’s final number Sunday night was, appropriately, “I Will Always Love You.”
Love and light,
