Gospel Music Association (MA) chairman of the board Ed Leonard took time to highlight a few of the ways the gospel music industry has reached out to Haiti in its hour of need, introducing the powerful music video for “Come Together Now” (Music City Unites for Haiti) which was led by Michael W. Smith (written by Smith, David Mullen and Cindy Morgan).
Teary-eyed from viewing the powerful video, Michael W. Smith spoke briefly of his trip to Haiti last week and how long it would take for the people to recover.
We may be here to announce Dove nominations today, but the true awards go to the people in Haiti and the meaning of something like this comes only through what we do in times like this,” said Smith, who visited Haiti after the earthquake. Any recognition we give to those making an impact in this industry, goes all just to God’s glory and His fame, to be able to reach out further, to communicate His message to the world.
He made special mention of U.S. troops in Haiti…
To watch our military not only keep the peace but love on the Haitian people was an image I’ll never forget the rest of my life…
