JASON GRAY’S MUSIC BRINGS HOPE AND COMFORT TO THE CHILDREN AT HAITI’S RESCUE CHILDREN ORPHANAGE

Written by Scoops Staff on January 22, 2010 – 1:52 pm -

GRAY COMPLETES RADIO TOUR IN SUPPORT OF SINGLE, “MORE LIKE FALLING IN LOVE,” THAT COVERED 2000 MILES AND SEVENTEEN RADIO STATIONS

Nashville, TN (January 22, 2010) —- Renowned singer/songwriter, Jason Gray, brought hope and comfort recently to some of the littlest victims of Haiti’s recent earthquake.  The Rescue Children Orphanage is run by volunteers at Lifechurch in Allentown, Pennsylvania and last Friday the church members showed the children a video that was filmed late last year at the orphanage.  The music bed for the video was Jason Gray’s song, “Fade With Our Voices,” that is on his latest CD, Everything Sad Is Coming Untrue, and was written by Gray and Jason Ingram.  The chorus begins with: Does our worship have hands? Does it have feet? Does it stand up in the face of injustice? The story is documented in an MSNBC.com story from January 15th by network reporter, Bill Dedman, entitled, “A Joyful Reunion, But Now What?” Monday afternoon the children were evacuated to a safer orphanage forty miles from Port-au Prince, Love A Child, where they remain safely settled.

At the same time, Gray was on the second leg of a successful radio tour that covered two-thousand miles, from Houston, Texas to Minneapolis Minnesota, and during the trip he visited seventeen Christian radio stations.  Gray is promoting his second single, “More Like Falling In Love,” that is from his latest CD, Everything Sad Is Coming Untrue.  Stations already playing the song include: KLTY/Dallas, Texas; KXOJ/Tulsa, Oklahoma; KCVO/Camdenton, MO and WNWC/Madison, Wisconsin.
