Before Brody became an award winning Canadian country artist, he made a promise to himself that he would do something good with his fame if he ever became successful.
That promise led him to create The Dean Brody Foundation and focusing his efforts on saving young girls trapped as child prostitutes in Brazil. However, the difficulty of attacking a problem so large was something that the 36-year-old never anticipated.
Brody plans on returning to Brazil this June, schedule permitting, to visit the foundation's safe house in the Pedreira favela in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.
