Philadelphia, PA, August 30, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- For publicly offering a visible act of chivalry and serving as a role model for today's young men, Nick Cannon, host of the NBC program "America's Got Talent," has been awarded the honor of "Chivalry Role Model of the Month" for August, 2014.
The recognition, presented by BringChivalryBack.com, recognizes noteworthy acts of chivalry, grandiose or small, which demonstrate the positive impact that chivalrous gestures by men can have.
On the July 29th episode of the program, young singer Julia Goodwin was performing a song while standing on an elevated platform on top of the stage. When her performance was finished, rather than walking immediately to face the judges to get their reactions Mr. Cannon took a slight detour to the side of the platform where Miss Goodwin was standing. He extended his hand and helped her descend the steps. She was wearing a floor-length gown and high heels to which the girl may not have been accustomed, so this gesture allowed her to get onto the main stage with ease and gracefulness.
Relationship expert John Rasiej of BringChivalryBack.com remarks, "America's Got Talent draws a wide range of viewers including many girls and boys. Witnessing an act of chivalry can underscore for these boys and girls as well as for adults about the value and timelessness of such a gesture. By doing it in such a public venue, Mr. Cannon gave many young men a better understanding of the class and respect with which they can be treating women."
Mr. Rasiej states, "Each time we see positive role models displaying admirable qualities, more people have their awareness heightened and realize the value of that behavior."
The founder of BringChivalryBack.com, selected the "America's Got Talent" star as the awardee for how naturally the gesture was offered, without any fanfare. Having chivalry demonstrated on a national television program that appeals to young people helps spread the message in a powerful way.
BringChivalryBack.com aspires to rekindle the sincere practice of courteous behavior by men toward women. More information is available at www.BringChivalryBack.com and at the blog on that website.
