Money for Ecuador raised through latest Big Daddy Weave album
POPULAR American band Big Daddy Weave will release their fifth studio project, 'What Life Would Be Like', on 22nd July in the US. The Fervent release includes a cover of Phil Collins' classic "Another Day In Paradise" and was greatly influenced by a recent visit to poverty-stricken villages in Ecuador. Said the band's frontman Mike Weaver, "God used that trip to re-ignite the fire in us as a group. We haven't been the same since we got back. There is a passion that hasn't been there before, and we know we will never see the potential unleashed as long as we hang on to our old ideas of what life and ministry and being the Church is, rather than letting God just come and 'be' in us. I think the Lord really broke our hearts over who he loves, and that's everybody."
Because of Big Daddy Weave's involvement with aid agency World Vision, the organization secured a grant that will provide poor villages $14 for every 'What Life Would Be Like' CD sold. Fervent Records, along with other corporate entities, have partnered under the grant to help World Vision purchase and distribute food, water, clothing and medical supplies globally.The opinions expressed in this article are not necessarily those held by Cross Rhythms.
