LeAnn Rimes‘ video for her new song “Give” helps raise awareness for homeless teens across the country. The song is featured on her new album, Lady & Gentlemen, which will be released on September 27th.

Rimes partnered with StandUp For Kids, an a non-profit organization that helps homeless and street kids, to make this video. “‘Give’ is a song with a message about how if we want love, kindness and happiness in our lives, then we need to give some of that back,” Rimes says. “I believe that message needs to be shared with the world.”

This video was shot in Chicago, where there are approximately 25,000 homeless youths. “My life is forever changed from this experience,” Rimes says. “One thing they all said to me is no one looks them in the eye when they see them on the streets, so there’s a deep loneliness there and a feeling of almost not existing. I will now always look anyone who’s homeless in the eye and smile. That smile could make their whole day.”
