Artists unite bringing Hope for Isla and Jude
A star studded line up of Australian artists are uniting and bringing Hope for Isla and Jude, brother and sister who are suffering from the rare and fatal disease Sanfilippo Syndrome.
Hope for Isla and Jude, initated and produced by Sébastien Izambard from Il Divo, will see the Kate Bush classic This Woman’s Work released to radio Tuesday. The track includes vocals from Darren Hayes, Natalie Bassingthwaighte, Pete Murray, Ella Hooper, Diesel, David Campbell, Alex Lloyd, Christine Anu, Luke Steele, Katy Steele, Casey Donovan, Damien Leith, Marlisa, Nathaniel, The Australian Children’s Choir & special guest performance from (Red Hot Chili Peppers) Flea (playing Bass).
The bringing Hope for Isla and Jude music collaboration will raise much-needed funds for a life saving clinical trial & treatment for Isla and Jude.
"As a father of three young children myself, l could not sit back and watch these two precious children suffer from such a debilitating and ultimately fatal disease. This could be my children, this could be any of our children. My wish is to see Isla and Jude grow up and be given a chance at life, a chance every child deserves.
I am so humbled and thankful for the support of the Australian music artists lending their vocals. It is such a unique and beautiful quality of the Australian culture, banding together in times of need and one that every Australian should feel proud of”, said Sébastien.
All funds raised by the sale of This Woman’s Work will go to the Sanfilippo Children’s Foundation, a not-for-profit charity that dedicates their resources to progressing clinical research into the effective treatment of Mucopolysaccharidosis III, also known as MPSIII or Sanfilippo Syndrome.
The Sanfilippo Children’s Foundation was founded by Megan and Allan Donnell, whose children, Isla (5) and Jude (3) have both been diagnosed with this rare and fatal disease.
