Musicians join Extreme Makeover Home Edition

Posted by Katina on December 7, 2009 at 2:24 am

Tonight’s episode of Extreme Makeover Home Edition features Usher assisting the crew in building a home for the Scott family who lost their husband/father who was killed in an accident.

In past seasons, musicians just sang. But this season the show has asked celebrities of all sorts to roll up their sleeves and pick up hammers and paint brushes to help the families receive hope in the form of a new home.

Check out my Song-In-Action episode guide of the musicians on Extreme Makeover Home Edition. Clicking on the picture will take you to ABC.com where you can watch the full episode. Clicking on the name of the artist will lead to articles/blogs about their experiences on the show. I hope you enjoy.

“I mean, this family was so amazing, so beautiful and their story was completely heartbreaking.  So to finally be able to build a house that was functional for them, in their situation.  It’s so rewarding.  We were rewarded with so many smiles, so to see them smile when the buss moved and they saw the house, it was life-changing and such a blessing.” Kelli Pickler
