Benefit planned for fire-stricken family

When budding young artist Destiny Underwood scheduled her video shoot for her new single, “Can I Be Me,’ for Sunday Feb. 19, at the Lamar County Football Stadium, Hailey Power and Anna Hambrick were two of the girls who volunteered to be part of the video. Now the video is being turned into a fundraiser for the two girls. Anna Hambrick died as a result of a fire that destroyed her home and her sister Hailey, a classmate of Destiny’s, is battling back from smoke inhalation. Destiny wants to help Hailey and her family as much as possible and is asking for the community’s help to come and donate to the family. ’We’re deeply saddened and feel speechless that Anna was taken so soon,’ said Destiny. ‘This is a horrible, tragic event. God has a special little angel in heaven now. We want to continue to keep Hailey and her family in our prayers.’ At the video shoot, which will run from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., the Underwood family will have barrels the schools use for the Empty Stocking Fund on hand for donations. ’This family will need everything from clothes to household items and burial expenses for Anna,’ Destiny said. ‘We want to help out as much as we can for Anna, Hailey and the family. We’re asking if anyone in the community wants to donate to come to the stadium and donate what you can.’ The message of Destiny’s new song is that it’s okay to be who you are. It aims to give girls and boys a message to accept who they are and not change but be proud.
