Target: Bart Millard, Lead Singer of MercyMe
Goal: Stop popular band from performing at concert designed to increase SeaWorld attendance.
Thanks to Blackfish and increasing public awareness, SeaWorld’s attendance has been plummeting. In order to increase attendance, it has put together a Christian music festival called Praise Wave.
Many Christian singers, including Martina McBride, Willie Nelson, and Trace Adkins have cancelled their performances. MercyMe should follow suit and not support this company that forces wild animals to perform unnatural tricks in front of large crowds.
Sign this petition and demand that MercyMe cancel their performance at SeaWorld.
Dear Mr. Millard,
Your band is planning a performance at SeaWorld’s Christian music festival, Praise Wave. SeaWorld is using Praise Wave as a chance to increase its traffic since attendance has been dropping in recent years.
The reason for this drop in attendance is because the public is becoming more aware of the atrocities that happen behind the curtains at SeaWorld. Wild animals are taken from their natural habitat and forced to perform tricks in front of large, jeering crowds. When the animals are not entertaining the masses, they are forced to live in tanks much too small for them.
Please consider cancelling your performance at SeaWorld. Many other singers including Martina McBride, Willie Nelson, and Trace Adkins have already cancelled their performances after learning about the horrors of SeaWorld. No animal should be confined for entertainment.
[Your Name Here]
