February 28th, 2009

Sony Music Entertainment Australia is pleased to support the fundraising for the Victorian Bushfire Appeal through the release of a special benefit compilation CD “BUSHFIRE AID – Artists for the Bushfire Appeal”. Australian and international artists have immediately jumped to the cause and generously donated their songs and royalties to help the appeal. BUSHFIRE AID – Artists For The Bushfire Appeal features thirty five tracks over two cds from artists such as Midnight Oil, Hoodoo Gurus, John Farnham, Delta Goodrem, Jessica Mauboy, John Butler Trio and Wes Carr, together with international artists such as Bruce Springsteen and Billy Joel.

BUSHFIRE AID – Artists For The Bushfire Appeal was officially launched during the Nine Network telethon ‘Australia Unites – The Victorian Bushfire Appeal’, which aired on Thursday 12 February nationally. Sony Music proceeds from the sale of the CD will go to the Salvation Army Bushfire Appeal through the charitable arm of the Australian Sony Group of Companies, The Sony Foundation.

Entertainment said: “Sony Music Australia is privileged to support the Victorian Bushfire Appeal through this special CD.

Our thanks go to all of the artists and songwriters for generously donating their tracks royalty free. We also thank Sony DADC Australia for kindly donating the CD manufacturing.

I know everyone in Australia shares deep concern for this tragedy, its horrific toll on life, families, communities and wildlife. 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.”
