Tasha Cobbs Leonard, Michael W. Smith Sign-on for Food For The Poor’s Virtual Concert to Help Feed Starving Families

Food For The Poor is hosting a virtual concert featuring two Grammy Award-winning Christian artists and other top musical talents to raise funds for hungry families in the Caribbean and Latin America, ravaged this year by the COVID-19 pandemic, hurricanes and a volcanic eruption.

The National Celebration We Are One Virtual Concert will be streamed live from the charity’s new broadcast studio at its Coconut Creek headquarters at 7 p.m. Eastern time on Thursday, Aug. 12.

The goal is to raise funds to provide 10 million meals for families in desperate need.

Performers include Jason Gray, Tasha Cobbs Leonard and Michael W. Smith with a special performance by international recording artist Glacia Robinson.

Food For The Poor President/CEO Ed Raine said families in the countries served by the charity continue to face extraordinary challenges and dire hunger.

In Haiti, a spike in COVID-19 cases coupled with gang violence and civil unrest have created a humanitarian crisis.

“These families were already struggling for food and medical care and need our help more than ever,” Raine said. “The countries are begging us for increased food shipments.”

Last year, moved by the overwhelming news of the spread of COVID-19 and hoping to provide hope and comfort, Glacia Robinson spilled out her heart in one day last month and wrote the lyrics to “We Are One.”
