Sarah is more than the soundtrack for those heartstring tugging ASPCA commercials. She set up the Sarah McLachlan School of Music which provides music education to underserved and at-risk youth at no cost. Every three years she also organizes a huge charity concert called Voices in the Park that helps fund the school.

Marc Pollick, president and founder of The Giving Back Fund says, "Encouragement by example is the main reason we compile this list. One cannot help but be influenced by the generosity of his or her peers." When I looked for moms in the music industry who were passionately connected to charities I found all kinds of ways that they were giving back. Not every musician gave a giant chunk of money. Some also make a huge difference simply by encouraging their fans to get involved. These mamas raise families, record songs, and plan tours. These Mamas rock. They don't just rock in a head nod kind of way. They really rock. They rock for a cause. -By Dresden Shumaker
