Press Release PRESS RELEASE *** PRESS RELEASE *** PRESS RELEASE

This week, _______________________________welcomes Luke West who will perform at the _______________________ on ______________________ at ______p.m/a.m.. The performance is sponsored by ____________________________________. Nashville recording artist, Luke West, hails from the colorful hills of Fayetteville, Arkansas and a heritage of country music that began with parents, “Sarge” & Shirley West, renowned as the first black country music duet in the US. Luke West furthers that tradition through his warm, rusty southern singing voice, his own unique original songwriting, and his respected recording of the #1 hit single “Sing Me Back Home,” originally recorded by Merle Haggard. In the early eighties, West toured with the international singing troupe, Up With People, singing for Pope John Paul II and performing in over fifteen countries abroad. His first original band, Cotton Top, won first place in the three day band contest Kutua Festival and Rodeo, and opened for country music legend, Shenandoah. In 2005, West was recognized as one of the leading acoustic artists on the Mississippi coast after Hurricane Katrina. He’s opened for Johnny Rodriguez, Tracy Lawrence, Andy Griggs and CMT’s 2011 Next Superstar Winner, Matt Mason, among others. In 2011, he moved to Ruidoso, NM where he serves as Director of the NM-OATH Performing Arts Initiative of New Mexico Organized Against Trafficking Humans, raising funds and public awareness on behalf of victims of modern slavery.


Charity Contributions to NM Organized Against Trafficking Humans

On behalf of the victims of human trafficking, Luke West donates a portion of his proceeds to this non-profit organization. In 2011, Luke began working with NM Organized Against Trafficking Humans as the founding director of the NMOATH Performing Arts Initiative. Today, he continues to raise awareness about modern slavery, and a portion of the proceeds from his shows is donated to the NM-OATH organization. NM-OATH works to raise awareness about human trafficking, now so pervasive that this criminal activity is the #1 priority pursued by the FBI in the state of New Mexico. As the only 501(c)(3) nonprofit in the state focusing on this issue, NM-OATH serves as the primary state-wide educational resource on this issue, addressing this pandemic through three primary avenues:

The NM-OATH Performing Arts Initiative: NM-OATH promotes musicians and other performing arts events which offer a range of opportunities from fundraising to public speaking. Venue owners become strong supporters of NM-OATH and audiences are exposed to the issue and the work underway at NM-OATH.

NM-OATH Programs & Activities: Volunteer s develop r esear ch, ar r ange speaking engagements, pr ojects, events, and educational programming.

The NM Rescue & Restore Coalition: NM-OATH facilitates this state-wide coalition under the umbrella of the US Department of Health and Human Services’ campaign against trafficking in persons. Through the coalition, members of professional and civic organizations receive industry-specific training on human trafficking victim identification.

Through this work to increase wider community consciousness, children will be less vulnerable to local trafficking predators, communities wake to reduce their ripeness for exploitation, and freed victims enjoy rights-based responses.
