Gospel music artists record gospel song for Haiti relief
I’m so proud of the gospel music community for stepping up to the plate to help in the Haiti relief efforts.
Some folks on twitter have been tweeting about the relief song, and even posting some pictures of the artists in the recording studio. The situation in Haiti is a terrible one, and it’s great to see my favorite gospel music artists take some time to make a difference.
According to Gospel Music Channel, gospel music’s favorite guy Kirk Franklin, spearheaded everything through e-mails, text messages, and word of mouth of the urgent need to make a difference.
The response was overwhelming for what Franklin had dubbed as the gospel community’s answer to “We Are the World,” with confirmations of participants coming swiftly. Yolanda Adams, Marvin Winans, Mary Mary, Natalie Grant, Dorinda Clark-Cole, BeBe & CeCe, David & Tamela Mann, Vickie Winans, Donald Lawrence, Shirley Caesar, Tarshe, Dewayne Woods, Stephen Hurd, Bishop Paul Morton, Anthony Hamilton and his wife, P.J. Morton, and J.J.Hairston would participate in an endeavor that was becoming more important than the one that brought them to Music City for the 2010 taping of the 25th Annual Stellar Awards.
So committed was the gospel recording artist and star of Meet the Browns David Mann, that he and his wife Tamela stayed at the studio until 4:30 in the morning working on the track.
“It’s our chance to give back to people in need. That’s what ministry is all about,” Tamela stated, as her husband David added, “We have never pulled together and done anything like this and it’s one of those songs that really touches the heart and ministers.”
