"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. "I was always aware of Heifer, growing up near its headquarters, but when I began to study their mission as an adult, I realized that they have a tangible solutiona working modelalready in place."

Belew was inspired to write the song "Say Love" and commit its proceeds to benefit Heifer International's work. "I wrote this song as a call to action. We are one humanity; when one starves, we all starve in some way."

The song will be released on iTunes beginning April 1April Fool's Day, but Belew says with a thoughtful smile, "hunger is no joke."
