World-renowned singer, songwriter, and producer, Maher Zain, is thrilled to join the digital-first charity, One Family, founded by his label, Awakening Records.
Zain said of his new charitable venture, “One Family’s vision is very much in tune with my core values. One Family is all about love and family because these are things we all have in common, no matter where we are in the world. We all understand what family means and how important it is. What One Family does is connect people through music and the internet to create a single, united family. My sincere hope is that my fans and followers will see what this charity is trying to do and join us so that, together, we can make the world a better place.”
He will serve as One Family’s Global Ambassador, taking the charity’s message of compassion and action-based change across the globe. Zain, who has over 3 billion YouTube views in the last two years alone, has personally witnessed the power music has to change the world for the better. He is a high-profile supporter of UNHCR and firmly believes that his fame serves no worthwhile purpose unless it is used to help those in need.
“I don’t think I am doing anything extraordinary by helping others,” he said. “I truly believe that it’s my duty and responsibility. I never asked to be born to the family I was born into, or in the country I grew up in, or to be blessed with so many opportunities. These were given to me. And I believe that with every gift comes responsibility. Caring for others and sharing what you have is a duty.”
