SHOUT launches new anti-crime song

2012-03-16 12:18
Cape Town -  Anti-crime campaign SHOUT launched their latest anti-crime song in Johannesburg on Thursday.

The new song replaces the previous song that was launched in 2010 and is a remake of the John Farnham classic, You’re The Voice.

The track was produced by Crighton Goodwill and Danny K.  It features some of the country’s most famous recording artists.

More than 30 artists were involved in the recording - including current hip-hop kingpin AKA, Afrikaans rock group Die Heuwels Fantasties, rapper Khuli Chana, and jazz musician Hugh Masekela. It also features more than 80 SA celebrities including Archbishop Tutu.

'Fight against crime'

"We had a fantastic time putting the song and video together. You can only imagine the logistics of finding time in everyone’s diary but we are immensely grateful to everyone who contributed," one of the original founders, Kabelo said.

The other original founder, Danny K added: "We’ve done our part in creating what I think is a fantastic version of a classic song. Now it’s up to South Africans everywhere to join us in our fight against crime."

The two artists founded SHOUT in 2010 after the tragic death of fellow musician Lucky Dube in 2007.

The song is available for download via SMS. For information visit SHOUT's Facebook page.
