Trisha the Journalist

After being featured in several national magazines as a subject, Trisha Yearwood will serve as “guest editor” for Mode magazine. The publication, which focuses on fashion and lifestyles for women size 12 and above, tapped Yearwood after Mode‘s executive editor spent a few days with the singer on the road. The magazine also will include a feature story and photo spread shot outside Nashville by fashion photographer Carlo Dalla Chiesa. The issue will hit stands later this month. Yearwood is lending her voice to the animated children’s film The Tangerine Bear: Home in Time for Christmas. She serves as the story’s narrator and sings two songs, “Lookin’ For a Place to Belong” and “Getting Ready for Christmas Day.” Fifty cents from the sale of each video and DVD will go to the Starlight Children’s Foundation, which assists seriously ill children and their families.
