Jimmy Wayne had a challenging upbringing. He experienced abuse, neglect, and abandonment. He spent time in and out of foster care. Finally he was informally adopted by a couple who gave him the love and stability he needed to thrive, and despite his early life challenges, he was able to become a star in the country music industry.
But that wasn’t enough for him.
“You’re not a star unless you’re shining your light for other people,” says Wayne. “A real star lights up the world for other people so they can see their way.”
Wayne’s mission in life is to change the lives of children in foster care.
