Dan Haseltine is the lead singer of The Hawk in Paris and the multi-platinum, multi-Grammy winning music group, Jars of Clay. Dan is also the founder of Blood:Water Mission, a grassroots organization that empowers communities to work together against the HIV/AIDS and water crises in Africa.
Since its launch in 2005, the organization has come alongside communities by providing safe water, hygiene and sanitation to over 800,000 people in 11 different HIV-affected countries and provided HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment and care to over 30,000 affected by the epidemic. His vision is one of humanization, to bring meaning to statistics by translating the debilitating and overwhelming numbers to the end that they would represent a single face and a significant personal story.
Dan’s artistic titles include songwriter, producer, film composer, music supervisor and art designer. He is a regular columnist for Relevant magazine. He has written children’s stories and contributed essays for books about worship music, Johnny Cash, HIV/AIDS in Africa, social justice and church reform.
In 1989, when “climate change” had just entered the public lexicon, 63 percent of Americans understood it was a problem. Almost 25 years later, that proportion is actually a bit lower, at 58 percent.
