Will & Woody create iconic barbershop quartet for Movember
The KIIS Network’s Will & Woody have once again thrown their support behind leading men’s health charity Movember, this time creating a barbershop quartet alongside Human Nature’s Phil Burton and Aussie singer Rob Mills.
They put on show to remember at Jimmy’s Barbershop in Ballarat last night, surprising owner and barber Jimmy Morrison with their exclusive performance of Barbershop – a special rendition of 50 Cent’s Candy Shop.
Jimmy’s Barbershop was selected from a number of listener nominations, as it embodies everything that Movember is all about – encouraging open conversations between men and helping the community.
The boys have spent the past week working with several legends of the Australian music industry who’ve imparted their wisdom, including The Wiggles, Heartbreak High star and singer Ayesha Madon, Canadian singer-songwriter Lauren Spencer-Smith and music mogul Ian ‘Dicko’ Dickson.
Will says “We are strong believers in using our show for good and we hope that it continues to serve as a platform to delve into uncomfortable, vulnerable and important discussions around mental health in particular.”
Woody says “It may be the case that Millsy, Phil and even Will are really good singers and I’m not, but I’m going to bring a great vibe to the quartet and that’s arguably far more important than singing talent.”
Movember CEO Michelle Terry says “The harsh reality is that globally, we lose one man to suicide every minute of every day.”
“Our fathers, partners, brothers, and friends are facing a health crisis, and we can’t afford to stay silent.”
