Following suit, Natasha Owens has donated all proceeds from her album sales through the end of the year to relief efforts, Sanctus Real released their new single several weeks early to benefit the cause and Switchfoot and Lifehouse teamed up to write a special song for the occasion. Most recently, a massive group of artists gathered to announce Night of Hope, a relief concert to be held September 20th in Texas. With a confirmed lineup of MercyMe, TobyMac, Casting Crowns, For King & Country, Zach Williams, Natalie Grant, Danny Gokey, Phil Wickham, Josh Wilson, Chonda Pierce, Laura Story, Brandon Heath, Jason Roy of Building 429, Tauren Wells, Moriah Peters, Chris August, Jason Crabb, Wayne Watson, Plumb and John Tibbs, this event is a must-see.
