Collision Records hip-hop artist Swoope has released a new single, "Actions Speak Louder," on iTunes as a benefit for an orphanage in war-torn Sudan. Fellow Christian rappers LeCrae, Tedashii, and Jai guest on the track, while a John Piper snippet (no, he doesn't rap!) also makes an appearance.

According to the Collision site, a ministry called His Voice Global, founded by Vernon Burger, has helped to build three orphanages in Sudan and are hoping to build a fourth. In September, a team of believers from from Reach Records, The Village Church, Red Revolution, Collision Records and His Voice Global went to Sudan on a short-term missions trip. Moved by what they saw, Tedashii, Lecrae, Swoope, and Jai teamed up to record a single to raise awareness and funds for a fourth orphanage. All profits from the single will go to building the facility.
