Legends of the Southern Land


Why We Sing

Calling all local legends! You are invited to star in the next big Aussie Rock Anthem, Legends of the Southern Land.

We’re seeking 1,000 videos from around Australia of diverse people singing this awesome song, to help raise $50,000 for people in need. Winners will star in the official Legends of the Southern Land music video and appear live on stage during the 2016 national tour. This isn’t a talent quest, it’s a song to celebrate all Australians. We’re seeking people of all ages, faiths and cultures. Professional artists, shower singers… everyone is welcome.

Legends of the Southern Land, which writer John ‘Wonder World’ St. Peeters first heard in a dream, was written to uplift and unite Australians and celebrate this wonderful country. Aussie artists John (Swanee) Swan, Marty Rhone, Ray Burgess and Tommy Emmanuel and composer Michael Yule helped bring this dream to life. Artist biographies. You too can be part of this dream.

    This is awesome. Depression is one tough thing to shake. Kills thousands every day. Lost a lot of friends. I so want to be part of this.
