Mica Roberts teams with Verizon to combat domestic violence

Wednesday, May 28, 2008 – ShowDog Nashville singer Mica Roberts and Verizon teamed up to raise awareness about domestic violence. Roberts' single, "Things A Mama Don't Know," deals with the issue. She hooked up with Verizon, which was looking to further champion domestic violence prevention. Roberts will appear at Verizon stores in Charlotte and Raleigh, N.C. on the June 20-21 stops, respectively, of Toby Keith's Ford Trucks sponsored Biggest & Baddest Tour.

Additionally, Verizon will establish used cell phone collection points at the shows for its HopeLine program, which donates proceeds from the sale of refurbished phones to assist victims of domestic violence. At each in-store appearance, Roberts will perform a few songs, present a check from Verizon to a local shelter and a winner will be selected to receive tickets and backstage meet-and-greet passes for that evening's show.

"Domestic violence is a form of abuse felt by women of all walks of life across the country that often remains unspoken or kept secret," Roberts said. "I believe in the strong principles behind Verizon Wireless' pledge to fight domestic violence and look forward to contributing to the company's efforts to bring more attention to this national epidemic."
