Buffalo Songwriter Writes Song to Benefit Haiti

“HAITI, WE HEAR YOUR CRY” SONG BY BUFFALO SONGWRITER TO BENEFIT HAITIBuffalo, N.Y. (January 27, 2010) – Mark Weber, a recording artist from Buffalo, New York, has released the song “Haiti, We Hear Your Cry” as a digital download through his website, meetmarkweber.com. A portion of the proceeds will go to efforts to rebuild Haiti after the devastating earthquake hit the island nation recently.”I have friends in Kingston, Jamaica,” says Weber. “I saw both the tropical beauty and utter poverty there when I visited this past April, so I have some sort of idea what Haiti looks and feels like having visited its neighbor. When I saw the ‘Hope for Haiti’ TV special, I was inspired by fellow recording artists Coldplay, Bruce Springsteen, and Beyonce to write and record my own song to touch the hearts of people affected by this tragedy.”Weber, who has been the publicist for Kingdom Bound Christian music festival for several years, recently decided to record three albums with producer Joe Secchiaroli (This Day & Age, More Than Me, The Reign of Kindo). “Haiti, We Hear Your Cry” was written on January 24th, and recorded on January 25th in Secchiaroli’s Buffalo-area studio. It features Weber on piano and Secchiaroli on guitar, with a unique tropical drum beat.”I heard there are almost 400,000 orphans in Haiti,” says Weber. “And I can’t even imagine what it would be like if one day all the buildings collapsed around me, killing my friends and family. ‘Haiti, We Hear Your Cry’ is a song that came to me quickly, and is meant to let the Haitian people and their relatives abroad know that the rest of the world cares about them and our prayers are with them now, and in the months and years to come.”To see the “Haiti, We Hear Your Cry” video, and/or download the song, please visit meetmarkweber.com.
