Los Angeles - LeAnn Rimes stars in her new music video with several homeless teenagers.
The singer has partnered with the Stand Up For Kids charity for the promo for her single Give - taken from her forthcoming album Lady & Gentlemen.
Several homeless young people from Chicago, Illinois, appear in the video, and the 29-year-old musician admits the experience of working with them has changed her outlook on life.
In a posting on her website, LeAnn revealed: "My life is forever changed from this experience. One thing they all said to me is no one looks them in the eye when they see them on the streets, so there's a deep loneliness there and a feeling of almost not existing. I will now always look anyone who's homeless in the eye and smile. That smile could make their whole day."
The frank video opens with the stark message "13 kids die on the street every day" and then shows the homeless teenagers recount their experiences living rough before another message informs viewers that "an estimated 25 000 kids are homeless in Chicago alone".
The promo ends with the youngsters joining LeAnn to sing the last few lines of the song and information about the work Stand Up For Kids does across the US.
