Beyond The Stars CD

Posted on 27-04-2012

In 2007, a charity CD called "Reach For The Stars this Christmas" enabled 7 Toowoomba Catholic Parish Choirs and their supporters to raise funds for vital drought relief projects. Brendon Walmsley joined the project and recorded his song "One Candle" with the students from St Thomas Moore's.

A re-release in 2008 allowed the good work to continue by raising funds for Beyond Blue and the St Vincent dePaul Society.

Almost $40 000 was raised by the "Reach For The Stars" project.

Now in 2012, over 20 school choirs from far western Queensland, the Maranoa, Toowoomba and the Downs, working together with featured artists, to make a difference in their home towns; across their region and even across the world... planning to go BEYOND THE STARS THIS CHRISTMAS.

2012 Beneficiaries are the Royal Flying Doctor Service, St Vincents Hospital Toowoomba and Catholic Mission.

Featured artists include Gina Jeffries, Brendon Walmsley, James Blundell, Josh Arnold, Martin Paroz, Melissa Forbes, Ruby & Dave, Kirsty Akers, Melinda Janetzki.

Recording of the CD is planned for September 2012 for a November release.
