MORE: In 2010, ACM Lifting Lives began fully funding what was previously called the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center Music Camp. Today the ACM Lifting Lives Music Camp serves approximately 30 campers with Williams syndrome from around the country. Williams syndrome is a genetic condition that is present at birth and can affect anyone. It is characterized by medical problems, including cardiovascular disease, developmental delays, and learning disabilities. These occur side by side with striking verbal abilities, highly social personalities and an affinity for music. For more information, please visit www.ACMLiftingLives.org.
