SHERMAN, TX -- A teenager is using his voice to help tackle a major world issue, after hearing a startling statistic about slavery.

Texoma Christian School senior Brandon Handy says he was listening to a college religious conference called the Passion Conference on the computer in January. He says he was amazed to hear that there are still "slaves" around the world and even in America, including many involved in the sex trade.

"It was confusing to me that I could walk around and go around in my everyday life and just know that there's 27 million slaves in the world and not really anyone's doing anything about it," says Handy.

Handy recorded a compact disc to benefit the International Justice Mission, a charity that sends case workers to countries in Asia and Africa to help fight modern-day slavery.
