    War Child presents Heroes Notes

    It’s not uncommon for musicians to try their hand at covering classic songs from their heroes’ songbook. However, when one of your heroes personally selects a track from their own catalog and asks you to do the honors in the name of one of the world’s most acclaimed humanitarian organizations, you get something truly special... HEROES!

    WAR CHILD, an award winning charity that provides humanitarian assistance to war-affected children in some of the most devastated regions of the world, are proud to announce a unique and unprecedented collaboration between some of the biggest names in music history and today’s hottest artists.

    Working with a concept that mirrors one of the intrinsic aims of War Child’s efforts in war zones across the world – to place faith in the next generation – HEROES features some truly inspired and often brilliant re-interpretations of classic songs.
