Christian Music Artists 'Come Together' to Help Haiti

Ad Feedback

Dozens of Christian music recording artists are lending their voices to benefit relief efforts in Haiti.

More than 50 musicians gathered at a Nashville, Tenn. studio on Wednesday to record a new song titled "Come Together Now" at the request of Christian music artist Michael W. Smith.

Smith co-wrote the song as a reminder to help the people of the island nation, who are hurting in the aftermath of the Jan. 12 earthquake.

"To see what's been going on all day today, it's pretty much nothing short of a miracle having this thing done and - more importantly - the people responding," Smith said.

Having recently suffered the loss of his 5-year-old daughter, Christian recording artist Steven Curtis Chapman did not find it hard to relate to Haitian people's loss.

"My heart is broken for the people of Haiti," Chapman said. "And having as a family, lived through a great, great tragedy of our own in the last year and a half, this has hit us deeply in a tender place."

All the proceeds of the song will go to the American Red Cross and Samaritan's Purse to fund relief work in Haiti.

Smith said he expects the song will be available early next week.
