Award-Winning Singer Gives the Gift of Song to Food For The Poor

COCONUT CREEK, Fla. (April 7, 2020) Moved by the overwhelming news of the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) and hoping to provide hope and comfort, recording artist Glacia Robinson spilled out her heart in one day last month and wrote the lyrics to We Are One.

"The song We Are One is a song of love, encouragement and hope," Glacia said. "We want to saturate the atmosphere with a positive message, especially as we persevere through these challenging times."

Glacia, who lives in New York with husband and producer Emerson Ally, has strong ties to her homeland Jamaica and to the international relief and development organization Food For The Poor, which was founded in the United States 38 years ago to help the poor in Jamaica.

As news of COVID-19 dominated the airwaves, the couple felt compelled to do something. On March 15, they wrote the music and the lyrics to We Are One, which they also decided to share with the charity to use as a rallying cry to help others.

"Food For The Poor is a champion for the poor," Glacia said. "I admire and appreciate the amazing work that they are doing around the world. I had no reservation in sharing this song with an organization who does so much, and who gives so much hope through its donors. It's an honor to collaborate with them. I am eternally grateful for the opportunity to be of service."

Glacia is not only a household name in Jamaica, she is an award-winning singer, songwriter, composer, producer and author who's an inductee in the Caribbean Gospel Music Hall of Fame. She has performed internationally, recorded singles and collaborations with a variety of singers and is currently working on her sixth album.

"Our charity is truly humbled by this loving display of support by Glacia Robinson for this organization," said Food For The Poor President/CEO Ed Raine. "She has given us permission to use a song from her future album, We Are One, which seems very appropriate to all of humankind right now."

Food For The Poor has ramped up its response to COVID-19 (coronavirus) in the countries it serves, based on urgent requests from its offices and partners. The charity has sent 26 shipments of supplies to seven countries. It also donated 350 protective suits through Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale to Pompano Beach Fire Rescue to help their workers prevent transmission of the coronavirus.

Lyrics: WE ARE ONE

Verse:
Uncertainty creates a ripple effect
Fear of the unknown, infiltrates the core of every sect
We are surrounded by the frailty of our humanity
But it's our courage that will define us
Our hope that will unite us
‘Cause when all is said and done
We are one

Chorus:
We are one and the same
When you hurt, I hurt
When you cry, I cry
I feel your pain
Yes we are one and the same
Take a look inside
Let your heart be your guide in the rain
'Cause at the end of the day
We are one

Repeat Chorus:

Bridge:
Oh oh oh oh oh...oh/oh/ oh
Oh oh oh oh oh...oh/ oh/ oh
Oh oh oh oh oh...oh/ oh/ oh
Oh oh oh oh oh...oh / oh/ oh

Tag:
We are one
We are one
We are one
