Angel Haze x Arms Around the Child! The singer is devoting herself to an AMAZING cause.
Rapper Angel Haze is now the ambassador and face of Arms Around the Child, a new organization created by Leigh Blake who through her tireless work and energy has launched two life-changing organizations, The Red Hot Organization and Keep A Child Alive, which between them have raised over $50 million and helped to save over three million lives. Arms Around the Child is her latest venture focusing on children who are orphaned or in need of care and protection in India and Africa.
The organization has spread its message that children living parentless or in poverty need our attention and are the most vulnerable.
Arms Around the Child is thrilled to have Angel Haze as an Ambassador. When Leigh was listening to Rudimental's "Hell Could Freeze," her first thought was, "Who is this talented girl? She is simply amazing." After some quick research, Leigh had discovered Angel Haze. After a bit more research, Leigh discovered that Angel's childhood history and the extremely difficult road she followed made her an amazing voice for the issues Arms Around the Child wanted to focus on.
"As a once underprivileged child, I feel it's important to provide children of similar destructive, limited, or abusive backgrounds not just the freedom to choose where they want to go and who they want to be, but the resources as well. At the end of every day, I'd like to think I will have done all that I could to make someone else's journey a bit more comforting. I like to think that everyone can help in some way, and for me, it's an absolute joy and honor to be involved in a practice so exemplary," said Haze, who is currently and very publicly dating Ireland Baldwin, daughter of Alec Baldwin and ex-wife Kim Basinger.
"We believe Angel and Arms Around the Child will do amazing work together helping children," says Blake. "Angel is a great ambassador to have on board, not just because of her own childhood experiences which drive her passion, but because of her incredible musical talent and style which we know can reach a very wide audience."
Haze is hard at work on her second full-length album, while Arms Around the Child is currently preparing for the "Other Ball" in New York this Fall and creating a major fashion initiative for Valentine's Day 2015.
