War Child and music go way back

War Child and music go way back

To 1995 and the Balkans bloodbath happening on our doorstep. Whilst politicians did nothing, musicians like Oasis, Radiohead, Sir Paul McCartney and Paul Weller came together and did something remarkable.

They recorded the ‘HELP’ album in just three days. It’s the charity record that all others are compared to.

Since then, War Child has enjoyed a special relationship with some of the most legendary artists and hottest new acts.

There albums and gigs have raised money and awareness for War Child’s vital work. They’ve pioneered using the power of the music itself as a tool for therapy and for taking our message to a mass audience.
