About the song “Never Look Away”:
“I wrote the song as I was going through a season of life where I was praying and seeking God for direction and felt like He was completely silent,” shares frontman Ben Richter. “As I slowly learned to surrender my own will to Jesus, and He began to unveil His will in my life it was completely like a light shining into what had felt like darkness. It encourages me to know through any season of life, no matter what I'm up against that God is watching over me, and He will never look away.”
In other news, The Museum has just completed their tour with the organization, Not For Sale, and labelmate Rapture Ruckus. The Museum spent this spring bringing awareness to Human Trafficking and Slavery on this “Not for Sale Freedom” Tour. The band partnered with Not For Sale to provide a night woven together with music and education - a tour with a purpose. The Not For Sale Campaign equips and mobilizes Smart Activists to deploy innovative solutions to re-abolish slavery in their own backyards and across the globe (http://www.notforsalecampaign.org/).
During the tour, more than $10,000 was raised for Not For Sale to help fight Human Trafficking. Fans signed up for “28 to Emancipate” where they agree to donate $28 a month for the Not For Sale Campaign to fight to end slavery. In addition to the tour, The Museum participated on “Freedom Sunday” in March in Atlanta.
The Museum has also written and recorded a special song to raise awareness to end slavery and human trafficking. This single “Not For Sale” is available for free download: www.TheMuseumIsNotForSale.com.
