Husband and wife team Dan and Lauren Smith are gifted musicians who are using their God-given talents to help those in need. Using modern rock and praise and worship formats, the Smith’s last album, Revive Project, was created specifically to draw attention to the poverty in Reading, PA (listed as the poorest city in the US [2010]) and released to critical acclaim.

Now it’s time for their follow-up album, tentatively titled Faithful. The Smiths have been aiding local churches in urban missions and directly supporting non-profits in the city of Reading, but they need your help in raising $12,000 or more to make their next musical project happen. If you’re interested in helping out, check out the information below.

After all, music soothes even the most savage beasts.
