We interrupt Paisley June for a worthy cause… This morning I had a comment on the blog from DJ Dan Murphy of WACCI (We’re Australian Creative Collective Inc.) regarding the official video of the re-release dance remix of Olivia Newton-John’s “Magic”. Every download of the song raises money for the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre. Here’s what Dan had to say:
I have a fantastic video that I think you’ll be interested in.
It’s a HUGE production with over 300 volunteers creating a visually stunning music video for a charity single by Olivia Newton-John:
We had zero promotional budget for the single, so had to be creative to capture worldwide attention and raise awareness for the charity.
The video has had almost 20,000 hits in less than a week!
Please contact me if you would like an interview and I can tell you all about:
- how we managed to create the video in only one afternoon
- how the entire project first came about
- how we got everyone who worked on the song & video to donate their time & talent
- what Olivia herself thinks of the finished product
Thanks and chat soon,
Magic has been remixed by two Aussies – DJ Dan Murphy and Producer Steve Peach – to create a brand new dance version of the song with fresh vocals laid down by Olivia on the track for this fundraiser. If you are in Australia or New Zealand, you can get your copy of the song here: http://itunes.com/OliviaMagic – All proceeds go to the Olivia Appeal. For those not in Australia and New Zealand, you can check out the song at Dan’s link above.
