Album fulfils children’s foundation Christmas wish
THE members of one of Australia's most popular vocal ensembles are singing their hearts out for sick kids.
The Ten Tenors hope their album, Our Christmas Wish, is a top-seller because most of its $15 retail price will go to the Children's Hospital Foundation Queensland.
The foundation supports sick children and their families from across Queensland and Northern NSW.
Services include volunteers reading with and playing with children recovering in Lady Cilento Children's Hospital, respite and support for their mums and dads, services for regional families, and money for potentially life-saving research into childhood diseases.
The foundation's Cameron Prout said the organisation hoped to raise about $100,000 from sales of the album.
"The funds are going to be helping all of our programs," Mr Prout said.
The album is a compilation of the Tenors' favourite Christmas songs from the past 16 years.
Our Christmas Wish is available from Woolworths until December 31 or as a download from iTunes.
