Wynonna Is a Visionary Award-Winner
She has already won multiple awards, including five Grammys, and now Wynonna adds a new trophy to her collection, one which celebrates her efforts to help those who aspire to become part of the entertainment industry.
The multi-platinum-selling artist is the recent recipient of the 2010 Cecil Scaife Visionary Award, in honor of the late Cecil Scaife and his historic contributions to the development of what is now Music Row, including the beginning of the Mike Curb College of Entertainment and Music Business.
It's an honor that is perfect for Wynonna, says Cecil's daughter, LaRawn Scaife Rhea. "Wynonna personifies the spirit of this award. She has given so generously of her heart, talent and time to help the next generation realize a better life and better chance at success through her work with youth in our community and students pursuing a career in the music industry. It is a great honor to award The Cecil Scaife Visionary Award to Wynonna for the many special opportunities that she has made available to students through her special mentorship."
Wynonna's generosity extends far beyond helping aspiring singers. Proceeds from her latest CD, 'Love Heals,' available exclusively at Cracker Barrel restaurants nationwide, help the Wounded Warrior project, which raises awareness and enlist the public's aid for the needs of severely injured service men and women. She also joins fellow redhead Reba McEntire as one of more than 40 celebrities on the Red Cross Celebrity Cabinet, working to promote Red Cross services, both locally and around the world.
