Charity Effort Conquers G Music Chart

Faith Map (信心地圖), a compilation album from various singers going under the name of New Artist Family (新藝人家族), has reached the number one position in the G Music album chart for the week 31 July to 6 August. Released early in July, its sales have been steadily growing, and the two-disc collection has now pushed Jam Hsiao off the number one spot.

Faith Map is the Taiwanese music industry's response to the Global Economic Crisis. Concerned that so many people have been plunged into unemployment and financial distress by recent economic events, a group of singers got together and recorded an album to inspire confidence and faith for these dark times. Featured artists include Singaporeans He Yaoshan and JJ Lin in a duet, Faith in Travel, F.I.R members on a couple of tracks, Liu Hong and Wang Wanfei. The 14 songs on the album have inspirational titles such as Hero, Change and I'm Ready. There's a gospel flavour to some of the tracks, not surprisingly when notable evangelical Christians such as Will Liu and He Yaoshan are involved.

The artists agreed to donate their services, and album sale proceeds go to charity.
