It should not come as a surprise that Demi has soft spot for people in Kenya. The Latina singer had travelled to Africa on July 14 and participated in the advocacy involving a Canadian-based charity called, “Free the Children.” It is an organization that enjoins the youth around the world advocating for change.
The trip also served a milestone for the “Neon Lights” singer as she celebrated her 21st birthday in the region. Demi continues to stay away from hard drinking and partying after her short stay at an Illinois rehabilitation center in 2010.
The X-Factor USA judge whose “Heart Attack” single has received certification from Vevo after being viewed more than 100 million in August 2013, has served as a great inspiration particularly for the millions of fans who follows her on social media and those who adore her works.
Demi released her fourth album, “Demi” in May 2013 and her record label, Hollywood Records is said to be releasing her third single from the album. This is the first time that the singer will be releasing her third single as it was never done in any of her first three ones.
