Gospel music recording artist Kirk Franklin recently released a new single in an effort to provide relief to the devastated island nation of Haiti.
The song, written by Franklin, is titled, Are You Listening: A Love Song for Haiti.
More than 150 other singers and musicians joined Franklin to sing on the single. Many of them are it the Gospel community's equivalent of "We Are the World."
"It's a song God gave me after 9-11, but by the time I finished it, the timing had passed and I was just never able to marry it to anything," Franklin told Everyday Christian.
"But as I watched what was going on in Haiti, the Lord brought it to my attention that it would be perfect," he said. "We recorded it as quickly as we can so that we can have it to radio and other outlets with all of the proceeds going to the people of Haiti."
Proceeds from the sale of the single will go to earthquake relief efforts in Haiti.
