About Compassionart:
Founded by Delirious? frontman Martin Smith and his wife Anna, Compassionart is a charity based in Littlehampton, England that is dedicated to seeing works of art generate income for ongoing global relief for the poorest of the poor. Toward that goal, Compassionart gathered some of the world’s greatest songwriters in Scotland, UK to write 10-12 songs. Working together toward this common goal involving no personal gain, the internationally recognized songwriters far surpassed that objective completing 22 new songs, including “So Great.” Written by Paul Baloche, Steven Curtis Chapman, Stu Garrard (Delirious?), Israel Houghton, Tim Hughes, Graham Kendrick, Andy Park, Matt Redman, Martin Smith (Delirious?), Michael W. Smith and Darlene Zschech, one hundred percent of the proceeds derived from the songs will go directly to charity. Together these songwriters account for at least 40 million albums sold, 76 No. 1 songs, nine GRAMMY Awards, 98 Dove Awards, two Stellar Awards, two American Music Awards, and 78 current CCLI Top 500 songs sung by millions in churches around the world.

In addition to the songwriters, the publishers, managers, copyright institutes and agents involved have all waived their rights and are donating their efforts on these songs to Compassionart. A portion of the proceeds from WOW Hits 1 will also support the Compassionart initiative. For more information on the charity, go to
