Dance Music Stars Charity Work

Boy George, the ex Culture Club singer turned glitz DJ is one of the first within the industry to step forward to take part in a fundraiser for the victims and rebuilding of people and areas affected by the recent Tsunami that killed numbers fast approaching 130,000 people and destroyed whole towns in Indonesia, Thailand, Sri Lanka and India.

Teaming up with established crooners such as Cliff Richard, Ronan Keating, Chris Rea and Barry Gibb of the Bee Gees Boy George will sing alongside them on a track written by DJ Mike Read entitled 'Grief Never Grows Old. Its also rumoured that Olivia Newton John of the film 'Grease' has also been approached to take part.

On the other side of the world another Brit, James Zabiela is also doing what he can to help the appeal in pledging to give his entire DJ fee to the charity from an upcoming performance at Aussie club Room 680 on Saturday 15th January. The club has also been donating a percentage of the door taking for every night the club has been open since the disaster happened.

For dance music fans wanting to do their bit either go to a local event organised in aid of the charity, badger your local promoter to do one or donate to the cause via their website. (Matt Cheetham)
