The Beautiful City (Single)
Artist: John Michael Talbot
Label: Digital-only download from
Time: 4:08 minutes

Where so many of us may have seen nothing but chaos and destruction, John Michael Talbot sees a beautiful city. In his new digital-only single, he offers hope in the wake of ruin, proclaiming "she will rise again." Penned shortly after Katrinaís devastation, this song is available exclusively from John Michaelís website for .99 cents.

One hundred percent of the proceeds will go to Mercy Corps to benefit hurricane and earthquake victims. This is a non-profit founded by Dan OíNeill to alleviate suffering, poverty and oppression around the world. They have provided over $830 million in assistance to people in 80 nations. More than 91% of their resources are allocated to programs that directly assist those in need.

The song sounds like a modern-day offering from Mason Proffit or the Talbot Brothers. It continues the sound found on Monk Rock, John Michael Talbotís last release. For those who havenít heard John Michael lately, he has once again picked-up his electric guitar. This is captivating mid-tempo folk rock with Talbot Brothers style harmonies and a full band sound.
