Martin Smith (Delirious? frontman) found himself sitting in 5-star hotel rooms, then going to the slums to minister to the poor. The dichotomy of it all hurt him to the core. He decided to give back what he has: a microphone, a platform and the ability to write songs, and asked 11 friends to join him and do the same. Remarkably, his friends, who happen to be among the most well-known and gifted songwriters in the world, all cleared their schedules and joined him for a songwriter's retreat. Together the songwriters account for at least 42 million albums sold, 82 No. 1 songs, 10 GRAMMY Awards, 118 Dove Awards, two Stellar Awards, two American Music Awards, and 98 current CCLI Top 500 songs. 14 of those songs are revealed on the CompassionArt album, but bigger than that...all the proceeds ever raised by these songs will forever go to help the poorest communities around the world. The songwriters will not receive a penny. 7 genres defining vocalists have joined the group of 12 to sing on the album. And the story continues as people respond to this act of kindness...
