I chose Billy because it's his birthday today!! That got me thinking about....What's he doing NOW?????

Billy Gilman , the 12 year old boy who stole our country hearts back in 2000......

........turns 27 today!! :-)

Billy is STILL performing , he even made an appearence at the Grand Ole Opry this month.

Lately,  the multi-platinum-selling GRAMMY nominee brought together his country artist peers to record,  'The Choice' a song co-written by Billy to bring attention to the world issue  of children in need of shoes.  100% of the proceeds, from digital downloads, go directly to Soles4Souls, whose goal is  to put shoes on people in need. The song was released April 16. Watch the touching video.....

Billy is STILL a little sweetheart!!! :-)
