GREG LOUGANIS SINGS ON EPIC NASHVILLE RECORDING

OLYMPIC
GOLD MEDALIST
GREG
LOUGANIS
SINGS
ON EPIC NASHVILLE RECORDING.
Considered to
be the greatest diver in history, four-time Olympic champion Greg
Louganis
can now include “country singer” to his
long list of accolades.  The only male to sweep both the 3m and
10m diving events in consecutive Olympic Games (’84 and ’88),
Greg earned a total of 5 Olympic medals, 5 World Championship titles
and 47 national titles (more than anyone in U.S. history). Greg has
now contributed his singing talents to a record breaking Nashville
recording session for “Painted Hands”.
Produced by
former Atlantic Recording artist Wayne Warner for his
associated Melodical Hearts Foundation, the song was
inspired by the true and tragic story of Virgil Ware.
At the age of just thirteen, Ware was a victim of events related to
the 1963 civil rights movement. “The story of this little boy
pulled me in and I knew it had to be told,” says Warner. When
hearing the stories of today’s equality issues (ie, bullying,
social, racial, etc.) Warner felt that Virgil’s soul could help to
weave many of these issues together allowing the music to have the
conversation. For the first time in history, this song will
include a singer from each state to make up the United States
Choir
. The production presents a great platform where all come
together to promote a message of unity with an astounding cast of
voices. “Greg Louganis encompasses so much of what this project
is all about, we are so honored to have him on this project”
says Warner.
