Newsboys, Jars of Clay Contribute to 'ONE in the Spirit'

Published: 2005-02-25
"ONE in the Spirit" is a music video of faith which raises awareness of the fight against global poverty and AIDS epidemic. The three-minute video features such musicians as Peter Furler from the Newsboys, TobyMac, Michael W. Smith, and Jars of Clay. Frontman for Jars of Clay, Dan Haseline said of the video, "God has charged us all with ensuring dignity for his or her neighbour. I hope all of our listeners÷will join with The ONE campaign to make dignity a reality for every person on earth."

Every day, 8,000 people die and another 13,000 contract the HIV virus, nearly 1,800 of who are children. In poor countries, there are approximately 6 million AIDS patients in need of lifesaving medicines but only 700,000 currently have access. More than a billion people - including half the population of Sub-Saharan Africa - live on less than $1 a day. The video "ONE in the Spirit" will be featured at concerts, music festivals, and places of worship in 2005 to rally support for the campaign.
