Belew's new single to benefit Heifer International

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - An Arkansas native known for his appearance on "The Voice" is releasing a new single to benefit Heifer International.

Singer Cody Belew is releasing his single, "Say Love," on Monday. Belew says proceeds from the song will benefit the Arkansas-based charity.

Belew says he grew up raising animals on his family's farm and he understands the importance of Heifer's mission to end hunger and poverty worldwide. He says he recently met Heifer's project families in the Mississippi Delta in eastern Arkansas and in Ecuador.

Belew appeared on the third season of NBC's "The Voice." His single is available on iTunes.
