A country music song is spearheading efforts to raise awareness about human trafficking in Maine.

According to UNICEF, the United States has several "destination points for victims of child trafficking and exploitation" and Maine is not immune to this. Detective Sergeant Steve Webster of the South Portland Police Department sees first-hand how these victims are struggling with getting themselves out of this vicious cycle. He's teaming up with Steve Azar who sings "The Sky is Falling", a song that describes the battle victims of human trafficking face every day. Webster, along with Waynflete senior Mike Rodway, produced the music video for Azar, which was shot in Portland.

Webster visited the Morning Report to tell us how bad human trafficking is in Maine and about a concert that's trying to bring it to people's attention so we can end it. The concert is Wednesday, March 18th at the Westbrook Performing Arts Center and NEWS CENTER's Jackie Ward will be the emcee of the event.

Portland's own North of Nashville, Motor Booty Affair and comedian Karen Morgan will join Azar for a night of fun and education.
