A Song for the Saint of Impossible Causes: Keith Urban, Jordin Sparks & More Join Children of St. Jude’s Hospital

One of the earliest celebrity supporters of The Christophers was the actor Danny Thomas (Make Room for Daddy) who went on to found St. Jude Children’s Hospital, which treats kids with cancer and other diseases at no expense to them or their families. St. Jude’s is one of the most respected charities in the United States, and it has been a godsend to so many people during one of the darkest periods of their lives.

To raise funds and awareness, St. Jude’s has produced a new video of children at the hospital, the facility’s staff, and celebrities (including Keith Urban, Jordin Sparks, Lady Antebellum, Dr. Oz, Michael Strahan and many more) singing the Beatles classic, “Hey Jude.” Watch it below and visit their site if you’d like to help:

    I’ve seen Jordin out on tour several times and she never fails to entertain. I guess she’s expanding her stardom because she’s in the new Reebok video: http://bit.ly/ZigLite
