FOR KING + COUNTRY Hosts Online Concert Benefiting Ukraine Response
In celebration of their new album “What Are We Waiting For?”, multi-GRAMMY® winning duo FOR KING + COUNTRY is offering fans a free online performance on March 24 at 5 p.m. Pacific time. The concert will benefit Convoy of Hope, raising funds for those affected by the war in Ukraine.
“Convoy of Hope is incredibly blessed by this partnership with FOR KING + COUNTRY,” said Convoy President Hal Donaldson. “I truly appreciate Joel and Luke’s hearts for the work Convoy of Hope does and their desire to relieve the suffering of Ukrainians. The money they are helping raise will bring much-needed relief to people inside Ukraine and refugees in surrounding countries.”
Filmed live in the Mojave Desert in California, the concert can be viewed via Facebook and YouTube.
Joel and Luke Smallbone, brothers and the band’s founders, said, “Eight days into the album release, and it’s fair to say that it feels unlike any other, particularly with what the world has faced and continues to face. Our hope is that this family, spiritual, and global record will meet listeners right where they are and be a soundtrack as we step into the future. It’s with no small dose of gratitude that we say, ‘Thank you’! As a small way to express it, we’ve put together a special performance from the Mojave Desert, playing a good portion of the new record to celebrate and commemorate the launch and also raise funding for Ukrainian refugees.”
Convoy’s response is specifically tailored to meet the needs of people in and outside of Ukraine. Across eight countries, Convoy is providing food, water, emergency lighting, generators, sheltering supplies, clothing, medical supplies, hygiene kits, and other essentials.
