Songwriter Sings Against Child Sex Slavery at UN Forum on Human Trafficking

    CALGARY, Feb. 21 /CNW/ - Horrified by the pandemic of children bought and
sold for sexual slavery, songwriter Eric Proffitt has created a musical anthem
against this violation of human rights, which closed the final session of the
UN Forum on Human Trafficking in Vienna, Austria, February 15, 2008.
    Proffitt performed "Little Child" for 1,600 international delegates, from
116 countries, as a voice for the voiceless. The audience was in tears as
Proffitt begged, "God above, lead them to shelter, to lay down in peace...",
speaking of the 1.8 million children bought and sold each year for sexual
    "As the father of four beautiful young daughters, and husband to an
amazing wife, I had no choice but to do something to protect these precious
young lives," Proffitt said.

    Proffitt's performance can be viewed by internet:
    Advocates for the rights of children may contact Eric by email, and media
are welcome to contact him for interviews.
