Music 4 Ukraine Launches Star-Studded Charity Single ‘Heal This Broken Land’ to Raise War Relief Aid for the Families and Animals in Ukraine.
‘Heal This Broken Land’ features the original artist from The Adventures and other iconic artists from the 80s such as The Christians, Nick Heyward, T’Pau, Then Jerico, Brother Beyond, Doctor and The Medics, as well as backing singers Kelly Barnes and Ben J A and accomplished production teams. The single received incredible reception on its symbolic launch at this summer’s animal welfare fundraiser Forever Young Festival to a crowd of 26,000 people.
The song was originally written to reflect on the tragic events of Northern Ireland during the Troubles, but now it has been adapted to reflect on the devastating conflict between Ukraine and Russia, marking 6 months since the ongoing invasion began. It has an emotive theme, powerful lyrics, and haunting melodies.
The collaboration organiser Dr. Sharon Alston, a veterinarian and owner of a fundraising festival (Forever Young Festival in Ireland) commented:
“Heal This Broken Land” is a charity single, released to raise funds and awareness of the desperate plight of the children and animals devastated by the horrific invasion of Ukraine by Russia. As the conflict rages on, orphaned children and pets need support and rehousing. Our mission is to raise funds and awareness to support the charities working in these heartbreaking and perilous situations.”
Dr Alston had already joined forces with other charities to get direct animal aid delivered to Ukraine. With the devastating invasion still going on and inspired by artists she had worked with for the festival in the past, Sir Bob Geldof and Midge Ure, the charity collaboration became the obvious way to gain better reach and help those most in need. A timeless track delivered in the style of Band-Aid, it perfectly captures the current wave of retro revival. The dedication and drive of everyone involved in the collaboration are entirely philanthropic, aiming to achieve everything that’s possible to help the people and animals of Ukraine.
