Christian music singer Chris Tomlin collaborated with Thomas Rhett, Reba McEntire, Hillary Scott and Keith Urban to release a new song "Be A Light" this week. Artist proceeds from the new track will benefit MusiCares® COVID-19 Relief Fund to help music industry professionals in need.
Rhett revealed the song on March 30, in honor of his 30th birthday. Listen to it and download it HERE.
Having “comfortably grown into his role as a star with something to say” (Billboard), Rhett co-wrote the timeless message sure to embolden fans alongside Josh Miller, Josh Thompson and Matt Dragstrem, he said.
“I wrote ‘Be A Light’ last year as a way to process negativity and sadness I was seeing in the world,” Rhett said. “Now, as I sit in my home with my family on my 30th Birthday, we are in the middle of a world-wide pandemic affecting every single human on earth, all while our town of Nashville is still healing from devastating tornadoes that destroyed so much of our city less than one month ago. But, among the wreckage, I see us come together in ways I never dreamed possible. I knew in my heart this was the time to share this message with the world and our community. The voices who join me on this track are some of the brightest lights I know. I hope this song serves as a reminder that we are all in this together.”

To top it off, Rhett and the song’s collaborators will donate all proceeds from “Be A Light” to the MusiCares® COVID-19 Relief Fund. The Recording Academy® and its affiliated charitable foundation MusiCares® have established the COVID-19 Relief Fund to help people in the music industry affected by the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak and subsequent cancellation of multiple music events. From small venues to major music festivals, COVID-19 is deeply impacting live music events, and the creative community behind it all.
Administered through MusiCares, the COVID-19 Fund will be used to directly support those in the music community with the greatest need. If you wish to support our efforts to assist music people in need, visit: https://www.grammy.com/MusiCares/CoronavirusReliefFund.
