OK, I lied in the headline, it just sounded better…. V103’s Frank & Wand a morning show’s Christmas WISH promotion inspires Usher Raymond to donate $20,000
V-103’s Frank & Wand a Morning Show called on long-time friend, Usher Raymond for help with their annual Christmas Wish List Promotion. Every year, V103 listeners submit Christmas wishes on behalf of families in need. However, Wand a Smith realized with the troubled economy of 2008, she and Frank Ski would need to do more for Atlanta families this Christmas. Wand a says God led her to call Usher. (Dear Lord, God in Heaven)
Usher graciously donated $20,000 and said, “You can always rely on me, no question. Atlanta has always supported me and it’s unspoken for me to help.” (Can I have Usher’s number?)… Wand a says, “We’ve been close to Usher and his family and have watched him grow tremendously. I knew Usher would step up to the plate because that’s the kind of man he is. Usher is a special person and will continue to be blessed because of his heart.” (Wonder what she would have said if he just hung up the phone-laugh)
While in-studio, Atlanta ‘s Mayor Shirley Franklin recognized Usher as an Ambassador of Atlanta and said, “He is amazing. It really shows Usher’s compassion and makes me so proud of him. Atlanta is a great place because of people like Usher.” Deadline to submit an entry is Wednesday, Dec 17th at 5pm EST via www.v103webmag.com.
The Morning Show duo will begin blessing the selected families on Monday, Dec 15th at 7:30 am and 8:30 am daily.
OK this is a good gesture. I just wanted to have some fun with it
