Delivering Food, Shelter, and Hope to the Poorest of the Poor.
2012 Song of the Year
Each year Cross International gives a special award to the writer or music artist who has best conveyed the mission of our ministry in a current song. Our goal is to inspire more Christian artists to share this vital Gospel message to their listeners worldwide. Previous winners have been "Follow You" by Leeland, “Keep Changing the World” by Mike's Chair, and "I refuse" by Josh Wilson.
This year, you can help us select the 2012 Harmony of Hearts award winner by voting for the nominee you feel best communicates the importance of mercy and Christian service to the poor. The 2012 nominees are:
