Cody Belew, a season 3 contestant on NBC's The Voice, is releasing a single Monday to benefit Heifer International, a nonprofit organization to end hunger and poverty.
The Beebe native said in a news release Wednesday that he understands the importance of hard work and philanthropy.
"I have dreamed of finding a tangible solution to hunger and its shadow over the world since I was a kid growing up in rural Arkansas," Belew said in the release.
Belew said he wrote the single, "Say Love," as a "call to action."
"We are one humanity; when one starves, we all starve in some way," he said.
Starting Monday, fans can go to www.heifer.org/saylove to join the movement and find a link to download the song.
Belew, a performer most of his life, was invited to audition for NBC's popular show in January of last year. He was able to impress the judges and fans, making it to the final 8 contestants.
According to his website, Belew is currently working on his debut album.
