ELEVATE Music Group recording artist Justin Anthony is an island pop artist from Miami, Florida. His music pays homage to his hometown of Kingston, Jamaica where he began his music career as a Reggae artist. He is currently working with award-winning and Grammy nominated producer Winston “Blackout” Thomas (known for his work with Nicky Minaj, Jason Derulo, MIMS, Jim Jones, Serani, and Kymani Marley), on producing his debut album in the United States.
Justin was born October 21, 1984 in West Palm Beach, Florida. He was adopted 3 days after his birth by his loving parents Peter and Ann Chong. Justin was raised in Kingston, Jamaica with his younger brother and sister. Justin’s birthmother was 16 years old when she placed him for adoption. Justin is deeply committed to his family and Jamaican heritage, and is grateful to have been adopted into such a loving family.
"I am truly grateful to have been adopted by such caring parents who provided me with exceptional opportunities, love, and compassion. I can’t imagine my life any other way. I am honored to be part of such a wonderful organization like National Council For Adoption. They're on the front lines of advocating for adoption of children who are in great need of a loving, permanent family. I know firsthand the importance of a family, and am excited to bring more awareness to the cause of adoption.”
Award-winning country music artist Rodney Atkins is a spokesperson and major-media representative for Families For All. In 2008, Rodney gave a stellar performance at our Adoption Hall of Fame Award 28th Anniversary Celebration at the Birchmere in Alexandria, Virginia. After two sets of adoptive parents took him home but returned him to the orphanage because of a respiratory infection, Rodney was adopted as a baby by his parents, Allan and Margaret Atkins of Cumberland Gap, Tennessee. Rodney recently reunited with his own birthmother, calling her a “wonderful, beautiful lady.”
In November 2011, Rodney was featured in a PSA in honor of National Adoption Month, produced by National Council For Adoption. The National Adoption Month PSA aired in Walmart stores throughout the country during November. Rodney was also featured in a PSA in honor of National Foster Care Month, which aired in Walmart stores during May.
"NCFA raises awareness of children in foster care and helps Americans realize that we owe it to these kids to give them safe, loving families of their own. Like me, NCFA believes that every child deserves a loving family and I am proud to work with this wonderful organization."
