Country music star Sara Evans is poised to receive a major honor. The NAB Education Foundation (NABEF) chose Evans as a recipient of its Service to America Leadership Award. The award will be presented to the “Stronger” singer at the Celebration of Service to America Awards on June 12 at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium in Washington, D.C. During the ceremony, Evans is expected to perform a short set of her songs.
The Service to America Leadership Award is presented to those who have improved lives through public service. The award is said to be NABEF’s most prestigious honor. In choosing Evans as a recipient of the award, the organization’s president, Marcellus Alexander, stated:
Sara Evans continues to grace the country music charts with her stunning voice and lyrical authenticity to the delight of fans everywhere. She also gives voice to a diverse group of causes working to make our world a better place. It is an honor to present her with NABEF’s highest award.
Evans’ charity resume is rather extensive and includes serving as a Red Cross ambassador. During her stint as an ambassador, Evans was presented with the organization’s Crystal Cross award for her efforts. She has also recently been credited for raising over $10,000 for the CMA Foundation, which will help fund music education programs throughout the United States.
Throughout her career, Evans has, additionally, shown her support for organizations such as St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Children’s Miracle Network, Alabama Forever, and the Children’s Hospital in Birmingham.
Congratulations to Sara Evans on this tremendous honor! We appreciate all you have done for these amazing causes and celebrate you, along with the NABEF!
