SEATTLE, WA--February 22, 2011--Last week musician Aaron Gillespie traveled to Haiti with Samaritan’s Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association to see the work of the organizations and the progress in rebuilding from last year’s earthquake. This trip preludes Gillespie’s release of his solo album, Anthem Song (Produced by Aaron Sprinkle), on March 8th on Tooth & Nail Records / BEC Recordings. This album is now available for iTunes pre-sale that includes a bonus track only available with the pre-order.

During his three-day trip, Gillespie visited schools and orphanages in the small villages of Titanyen and Simonette as well as the Cite Soleil Cholera Treatment Center. Aaron traveled with his wife Jamie, who has a desire for missions.

"Haiti is beautiful and full of life,” shares Aaron Gillespie upon his return. “It is also mismanaged and they need of a lot of help. Jesus said that we should go everywhere and help people. Let’s go to Haiti as lovers of Christ and pour Him out on that great country in a tangible way. For so long I expected Haiti to be something terrible like the media displays, but in the face of it all there is hope and life there, and it is waiting to be rediscovered and taken back in Jesus' name."

Follow Gillespie’s trip and journey in Haiti through the photos captured here. Inspired by the location and people of Haiti, Gillespie also taped footage for a music video for his current single “We Were Made For You.” Footage was gathered from various locations across Haiti - from an old abandoned factory in Titanyen to the landmark National Cathedral in Port-au-Prince where Gillespie had the opportunity to play guitar alongside a 63-year-old Haitian who was blind. Watch this video as Gillespie gives the talented musician his own Fender guitar.

Anthem Song was sparked by a trip in 2010 to Uganda with Compassion International. Following this trip, Gillespie retired his role as drummer for the popular metalcore band Underoath and began writing and recording for Anthem Song. He remains the frontman of the indie-rock band he founded, The Almost. Fans can still pre-order Anthem Song in a variety of bundles at www.aarongmerch.com as well as here. Another hot pre-order is available at Family Christian Stores for $5.97, click here.
