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.
