Christian singer and songwriter Michael W. Smith says he felt compelled to do something about the tragic events that have taken place in Ukraine for nearly two months.
In response to the ongoing tragedy, he released the instrumental single “Cry for Hope.”
And a portion of the proceeds of “Cry For Hope” will be given to Ukraine aid.
“After watching the news and the devastation in Ukraine, like most of the world I was in tears,” Smith said in a press release. “Over the next few days, this melody just kept coming back to me and just spoke a message that no words could convey.”
The single was recorded with the Nashville Recording Orchestra and Smith on piano. The artist’s friend, David Hamilton, led the orchestration and co-produced the song with Smith.
The Grammy-award-winning artist told The Christian Post that his team is also assisting Franklin Graham’s humanitarian ministry, Samaritan’s Purse while they help Ukrainian refugees in Poland.
