For Today lead vocalist Mattie Montgomery explains, "One of the most devastating issues facing our modern global culture is the issue of human trafficking. No person, of any race, religion, nationality, or economic standing should ever have to live in forced subjection to another. There are over 27 MILLION people in slavery worldwide today (this is more than at any other time in human history), and yet, in the grand scheme of things, there is very little being done politically to bring this tragedy to an end. So, in light of this heinous injustice, For Today has teamed up with the A21 Campaign to help shine a light on the issue, and raise funds to continue the global effort to rescue and rehabilitate those who have been victimized, as well as to oppose and prosecute those who are responsible for the buying and selling of other human beings."

He continues, "There is a global network of sick, selfish people preying on the desperation of the broken and impoverished. Let's stand up and let our voices be heard for the sake of these voiceless captives. It's time we stand up, speak out, and Fight the Silence."

I think they only have one song they just play over and over again, so it's not really possible for them to get better or worse

The song is bad and it just feels like they're still attempting damage control.

It would probably be better damage control if they had chosen a charity that wasn't associated with Hillsong Church....

Ehhhh. That megachurch has a questionable history with spreading homophobic views. They seem to have turned a corner recently, but I still don't think that would be the greatest organization to embrace considering the nature of the controversy we were referring to.

I mean having talented guitar players that played awesome leads on their earlier work and now its just kinda chuggy without showcasing said talent. WTF mate.

Ohh... I see what you're getting at. Didn't know Hillsong was viewed like that. I've always loved the stuff they put out! I do understand the pitfalls that come with a church that large though.

They have made an effort to address that in the last year or so, at least.
