Michael W Smith and friends record song for Haiti

Michael W Smith has gathered a who's-who of the music community to record "Come Together Now" for Haiti.

The song, penned by Smith, David Mullen and Cindy Morgan, was written to remind people of the need to help those in Haiti.

"The crisis in Haiti has left us all trying to figure out how we can help," shares Smith.

"We wanted to create something that the community could support, for the greater good of those in Haiti.

"Everyone gave of their time: the studio was donated, the musicians donated their time and all proceeds from this song will go to designated charity/relief work through The American Red Cross and Samaritan's Purse. It's incredible to be part of something that is going to help so many people."

Contributing artists included Aaron Shust, Brandon Heath, Britt Nicole, Kevin Max, Mandisa, Mark Hall and Megan Garrett of Casting Crowns, Matthew West, Matt Maher, Mike Weaver, Natalie Grant, Nicole C. Mullen, Point of Grace and Steven Curtis Chapman, TobyMac.

The song will be made available for sale soon, with all proceeds going to benefit relief efforts to Haiti.
