University of Southern Queensland (USQ) singing group has decided to “unite their voices and help turn the tide on domestic violence” as part of Queensland Music Festival‘s You’re the Voice choral event.

A capella group ‘The Harmony Wednesdays’ is lending their melodic voices to the festival, which is set to bring together thousands of singers.

Together, these singers will join Queensland Music Festival’s Director Katie Noonan, Kate Cebrano, and Eurovision finalist Isaiah Firebrace in a mass rendition of John Farnham’s legendary anthem, ‘You’re the Voice’.

In the lead up to this highly-anticipated event, USQ’s singing group was visited by choral director Johnathon Welch, famous for establishing the well-known choir, ‘Choir of Hard Knocks‘.

USQ’s contemporary music lecturer Helen Russell said that this was a great opportunity for her students to gain insight and training from a high-calibre industry professional, and also spoke of the importance of the group taking part in raising awareness about domestic violence.

Kate Noonan, who is passionate about using music to educate, inspire, and change the world, said that the You’re the Voice choral

event can help people find their musical voice.

“I’m so proud of the positive response the Australian community and music industry, in rallying together to support this initiative,” said Noonan.

“It is a testament to the power of music being able to make a difference.”

You’re The Voice will take place this year at the South Bank Piazza in Brisbane on Saturday, 29 July.
