A portion of the proceeds from this project will go to The GMA Foundation’s Disaster Assistance Fund, which provides help to those in the Christian/Gospel music community, onstage and behind the scenes. The purpose of the fund is to offer relief to those whose health and basic necessities have been dramatically affected by COVID-19.

The Hope Anthology Project was kickstarted by composer, producer, songwriter, and GMA Dove Award and Stellar Gospel Music Award winner Paul Wright III who has worked on over 200 projects including serving as co-creator of the 20x platinum-selling WOW Gospel compilation and co-composer of the main title theme song of 90's hit sitcom Martin (1995-1997 season), to name a few.

Featuring new songs composed for this moment from artists, The Hope Anthology Project kicks off with GRAMMY® Award-winning, multi-platinum selling and Billboard Hot 100 charting recording artist Fred Hammond, the Dallas-based vocalist, songwriter, musician, producer and arranger offers an encouraging message that never gets old as he takes us back to the days of just good ol’fashioned church with his current Billboard #1 radio hit, "Alright," 4-time GRAMMY® nominated singer-songwriter Jekalyn Carr's "Never Left Me" showcases her lush, layered vocals over simple production, followed by Lamar Campbell & Spirit of Praise who once again delivers a powerful praise and worship offering entitled, "Open The Sky."

Jacky Clark-Chisholm of the legendary Clark Sisters teams up with one of R&B's elite, Mary J Blige and unique hip-hop talent Tia P. on the Billboard Gospel Digital Song Sales Top 15 track "Feel Good." Other features include Billboard No.1 recording artists Maranda Curtis with "Unconditional Love," Titus Showers featuring Jermaine Dolly on the current Billboard Top 10 radio hit "It's Gonna Be Alright," Staci Brown soothes listeners with "Healer," former Commissioned member Marcus Cole reminds us to "Be Still And Know," sibling trio Trilogy offers a huge dose of encouragement and showcases the breadth of their talent with Billboard Top 30 radio single,"Jesus Loves Me." Formerly of chart-topping duo AsOne (known as Music's First Female Interracial Duo), singer-songwriter Lisa Wright - who possess one of the most memorable and distinctive voices ever heard in Christian and Gospel music, she inspires us with "Hold On."

GRAMMY® nominee and GMA Dove Award winning singer, composer, producer and arranger Percy Bady completes the project with lead radio single, "Whole World."
