Kate Miller-Heidke lends vocals to Australian Red Cross campaign

Kate Miller-Heidke lends vocals to Australian Red Cross campaign

Musician has lent her vocal talents to not-for-profit organisation the Australian Red Cross.

Miller-Heidke wrote and recorded the original track ‘Where To Start’ alongside Keir Nuttall.

The animated campaign was created by DDB Sydney and is the charity’s first in almost 10 years. It will run across TV, online, social and digital at a time when there is increasing pressure on charities and those who traditionally donate to them.

DDB Sydney’s executive creative director, Matt Chandler, noted the generosity of those involved in the campaign, including Miller-Heidke and Nuttall.

“This project was a labour of love by a global force of brilliant creative people, from the incredible craftsmanship of the animators, to the impossible whistle-able track that Kate Miller-Heidke and Keir Nuttall wrote pro-bono for us,” he said.

“At every stage, we were blown away by people’s willingness to get involved in support of Red Cross.”

Belinda Dimovski, the the Australian Red Cross’ director of engagement and support, said the organisation is so pleased with how DDB Sydney brought the idea to life.

“When times are tough and problems feel overwhelming, Australian Red Cross is helping the community and we hope to inspire Australians to act with us,” she said of the overarching message of the campaign.
