Nashville, Tenn. (April 1, 2022) —  Grammy award winning, singer and songwriter Michael W. Smith is releasing his moving new instrumental single “Cry For Hope” today in response to the current devastation in Ukraine.

 “After watching the news and the devastation in Ukraine, like most of the world I was in tears.  Over the next few days this melody just kept coming back to me and just spoke a message that no words could convey,” Smith says.   

“Cry For Hope” was recorded with the Nashville Recording Orchestra and Smith on piano. His good friend David Hamilton led the orchestration and co-produced the song with Smith. 

A portion of the proceeds of “Cry For Hope” will be distributed to Ukraine aid.

About the A NIGHT AT THE PIANO TOUR from Michael W. Smith:
"I’ve done a lot of tours in my career, playing to sold-out arenas with a full band, a choir, and sometimes an entire orchestra, but what I love more than any of that is sitting at a piano where the audience and I can truly connect and have an experience together. I’m excited about this tour and the chance to do just that again."
