Scotty McCreery has signed on as National Goodwill Ambassador for the 12.14 Foundation. The organization was founded in the wake of the Newtown, CT school shooting to promote the performance arts as a "healing mechanism" from tragic events.

Scotty, who visited Newtown on December 12, 2013, just two days before the first anniversary of the shooting, says, "As a songwriter and performer, I know that music can bring hope and inspiration to those struggling to overcome great adversity.  The foundation’s vision of helping children and others heal through the performing arts really hits home for me as an entertainer.  I will do everything I can to help communities affected by tragedy to heal and gain strength through the work of the 12.14 Foundation.”

Scotty will promote the 12.14 Foundation's mission through personal appearances and social media. The organization seeks to build a performing arts and education center in Newtown. They've also produced arts programming featuring students from Newtown working alongside Broadway professionals.
