Irelands top singers and songwriters have joined forces for a project called 'Street Lights' to create a single and album to generate funds for the most vulnerable, our homeless.
We are happy to support this all week on Lost in Music with interviews with some of the acts.
Most importantly we are asking everyone to take a moment and donate by texting
Street Lights to 50300, texts cost €4 with €3.60 being divided amongst the 3 charities, Peter McVerry Trust, Simon Community Ireland and Focus Ireland.
The Street Lights collective, consisting of artists and Irish Music Industry professionals, have come together to record and release Simon and Garfunkel's classic single 'Homeward Bound'. Recorded in Camden Studios with producer/arranger Cian Boylan, the single features performances from a host of prolific artists including The High Hopes Choir, Gary Lightbody, Cathy Davey, Villagers, Loah, Bono, Roisin O, Join Me In The Pines, Saint Sister, Colm Mac Con Iomaire.
Peter McVerry Trust, Simon Community Ireland and Focus Ireland will be the recipients of all profits of the single and album sales, which they have agreed will go directly to rehoming and rehousing on a national level.
Join us on Lost in Music all week to fundraise through music.
