NASHVILLE, Tenn.-Bryan Olesen, lead vocalist and founding member of Christian pop/rock band VOTA, will be featured on " LIVE" Friday, February 1 at 12:15 pm CST. In the interview to be streamed live, Olesen will discuss VOTA's "Love Found Me" Campaign which, in partnership with Tiny Hands International, is seeking to help stop the flow of human trafficking across the border of Nepal into India. Funds from the campaign will go directly to support five border monitoring stations for five years, which could potentially intercept as many as 3000 children.

For a donation of any amount, campaign supporters are able to download VOTA's new release, Love Found Me, along with a second acoustic recording, No Plan B. All proceeds go directly to Tiny Hands International. The "Love Found Me" Campaign features a special video message from Olesen, which can be viewed at

Love Found Me marks VOTA's first new studio recording in five years. Produced by GRAMMY® Award-winning Nathan Dantzler (Audio Audrenaline) and Riley Friesen (Family Force 5), Love Found Me features 10 new songs, most written or co-written by Olesen, including the first single and video, "God Of The Universe."
