Rocky Girls Grammar students sing song that stops a nation
BRIDIE England and her fellow Rockhampton Girls Grammar students get into the spirit of the "song that stops a nation", part of the Music: Count Us In program.
Music: Count Us In is Australia's largest school music advocacy and participation program, growing steadily in reach and impact since 2007. , More than half a million school students across Australia, from kindergarten to Year 12, sang the same song at the same time yesterday.
This year's "song that stops the nation", Keep On, has a great pedigree.
The song was penned by four talented students who were mentored by singer-songwriter Katie Noonan, a big believer in music in education.
Keep On was produced by award-winning John Foreman and recorded by The Voice runner-up Darren Percival, with students providing backing vocals and musical accompaniment.
