Who out there fears God, actually listens to the voice of his servant? For anyone out there who doesn’t know where you’re going, anyone groping in the dark, Here’s what: Trust in God.

Set your fires, stir people up, blow on the flames, But don’t expect me to just stand there and watch. I’ll hold your feet to those flames. – Isaiah 50:11 (The Message)

In the mid-eighties, following Band Aid’s recording project, “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” Harry Belafonte teamed up with fundraiser Ken Kragen to assemble some of the top names in the recording industry. Their goal was to create a hit record whose proceeds would go to the African famine relief project. Within days pop stars like Stevie Wonder, Paul Simon, Billy Joel, Willie Nelson, Bruce Springsteen, Kenny Loggins, and Bob Dylan arrived at Kenny Rogers’ Lion Share Recording Studio. A few months later the supergroup released “We Are the World.” The song became the fastest-selling American pop single in history. Sales exceeded twenty million copies. Along with promotional and merchandise products, the project raised over $63 million in humanitarian aid.
