Don Moen Gives the Gift of Song
Christian music singer Don Moen is allowing donors of Food For The Poor to download one of the tracks from his much anticipated "Hymns of Hope," which is the follow-up to "Hymnbook:16 Classic Hymns," for free.
COCONUT CREEK, Fla. (April 30, 2014) – The internationally known Christian singer and songwriter, Don Moen, is once again giving the gift of music to the loyal supporters of Food For The Poor. Moen’s much anticipated Hymns of Hope, which is the follow-up to Hymnbook: 16 Classic Hymns will be released later this spring, but Food For The Poor donors can download one of the tracks for free starting Thursday.
“I know that 95 percent of all donations given goes directly to help those in need and reflects the true heart of ministry throughout this organization. Your investment into Food For The Poor will have an incredible return,” said Moen. “God bless you for your generous hearts toward my friends at Food For The Poor.”
Featuring 12 classics, Hymns of Hope includes favorites such as Be Thou My Vision, Pass Me Not O Gentle Savior and The Old Rugged Cross. The mid-tempo version of My Savior’s Love can be downloaded for free at FoodForThePoor.org/freesong from May 1 - 13.
“Throughout the centuries, hymns have provided hope to millions of people around the world when they have faced challenging situations. It's my prayer that as you listen to Hymns of Hope, you will be reminded once again of God's faithfulness yesterday, today, and forever,” Moen said.
The song also will be available to the donors of KLTY radio in Dallas, Texas, as a thank you gift for their support of Food For The Poor’s “Day of Hope” radio campaigns. The campaigns are ongoing nationwide to raise money to help fight chronic malnutrition and to build much needed homes for families in Kadwa, Haiti.
“Don Moen is one of the most talented Christian music artists around today. For him to use his talents as a platform to bring attention to the needs of the poor and then thank Food For The Poor’s supporters by donating one of his songs is truly a blessing,” said Robin Mahfood, President/CEO of Food For The Poor.
For more than eight years, Moen has collaborated with Food For The Poor. The singer even traveled to Haiti with the charity in 2010. During his 2011 six-city Canadian concert tour, the singer shared his experiences from that mission trip with his devoted fans, who responded with donations to build 13 new two-room homes in the Caribbean nation.
“I have personally witnessed the overwhelming joy that fills the hearts of the people being touched by Food For The Poor,” said Moen. “I can never forget the look in their eyes, and the tears of gratitude and joy, knowing that someone cared enough to reach out to them, providing hope in a hopeless situation.”
Moen, a prolific songwriter, producer, and record label executive, has been leading worship around the world for more than three decades. Moen's first album for Hosanna! Music, Give Thanks, became the label's bestseller. Since that time, Moen has penned and recorded worship classics such as God Will Make A Way, I Will Sing, and God Is Good All The Time. Moen served as a label executive at Integrity Music for more than 20 years before starting his own company, Don Moen Productions in Nashville, Tenn. Today, Moen continues to lead worship internationally, bringing God's message of hope, comfort and encouragement around the world. For more information, please visit www.DonMoen.com.
