Kings Of Leon, P!NK And BON JOVI Join Australian Flood Campaign!

By on 21 January, 2011



Stars including the Kings Of Leon (pictured above), P!NK, Bob Dylan and Bon Jovi have joined the campaign to raise money for victims of the Australian floods by donating tracks to a new charity album.


The state of Queensland has been left devastated after heavy rains caused major flooding in the region earlier this month, with more than 25 people feared dead and thousands forced to flee their homes.

In order to help fund the massive clean-up operation, a large number of high-profile artists have lent their support to a charity CD called Flood Relief – Artists For The Flood Appeal. The album features a over 50 tracks (3 CDs), also from Aussie artists including Powderfinger, Midnight Oil and the fabulous Crowded House. Every artist has offered their music royalty free, according to a statement released by Sony Music Entertainment.

Denis Handlin, Chairman & CEO of Sony Music Entertainment Australia & New Zealand said:

“The floods in Queensland and throughout Australia have been devastating and affected the lives of so many people across the country. Sony Music Australia is once again proud to offer its support at a time of need through the release of this benefit CD – ‘FLOOD RELIEF – Artists For The Flood Appeal’.

“We have been overwhelmed by the response by both local and international artists wanting to contribute to the cause and our thanks go to all those artists and songwriters for generously donating their tracks royalty free. We also thank Sony DADC Australia for kindly donating the CD manufacturing.

“The effect of this tragedy and its terrible toll on life, families, communities and property has touched many people both here and around the globe. On behalf of Sony Music and the Sony Foundation, our thoughts and prayers are with those affected, and our immense gratitude goes to all the emergency service people and volunteers who have so generously given in this time of need.”
