A former Hollywood singer put her morals over fame. Landon Starbuck said she saw child grooming in the music industry, and now runs a nonprofit exposing child trafficking and abuse.
Ms. Starbuck lives in Tennessee, currently running Freedom Forever, a nonprofit exposing the world of child exploitation and saving children. She also creates music, such as her single “Hope,” to shed light on child trafficking.
But before that, she pursued a music career in Hollywood at age 18.
She shared that her time in the music industry opened her eyes to the sexual quid pro quo culture that is Hollywood, of what was expected, the favors, the denigration needed to become a star.
The singer recalled one experience, where she opposed wearing lingerie for a video shoot. She said the next day she was dropped from the project.
She said she’s now using her voice in a “much more powerful way in a much more meaningful way.”
