BACKGROUND INFO

Philippa Hanna visited Haiti several weeks before the earthquake which killed 200,000 people and left over a million homeless.  Her tour of orphanages and schools left a huge mental scar and a determination that something had to be done to ease their abject poverty. Now, in the wake of the world’s worst natural disasters, with people living without shelter in torrential seasonal rains, she has released Ave To Love to raise money specifically for the children of Haiti.

She has teamed up with Grammy award-winning record producer Eliot Kennedy who co-wrote and mixed Ave To Love.  Philippa said: “It broke my heart seeing the state of Haiti and that was before the earthquake. They had next to nothing and next to no-one even then. I felt I had to do something to help and producing this song will raise much-needed funds. Every penny is vital”.

Eliot Kennedy, the mixing genius behind many hits by Take That and the Spice Girls, says: “This is a fabulous song and Philly is a special singer. I believe the song has global appeal.” The song conveys a message of hope against the backdrop of desperation. It has already been received with rapturous applause by audiences on Philippa’s concert tour of the UK 20 venues.

The video features newsreel of the disaster and footage of Philippa performing and meeting and working with Haiti children as part of her role as an ambassador for the international children’s charity Compassion.

 In conversation yesterday Philippa told Valerie:-“Ever since my trip out to Haiti in November 09, I’ve been really shaken out of my comfort zone as a person. I’ve been a full-time touring artist for the past two years and music has always been my number one passion. But after seeing beautiful children and families living in abject poverty my heart has changed. I’ve realized that the best way to spend our lives is on others. So many across the world don’t enjoy the privilege and even the rights that we have here in the UK. I now want to do whatever I can with the gifts and opportunities I’ve been given, to help.

The reason I’ve chosen to support the organization Compassion is that they truly, truly make a difference. By using local people who know the culture, they are not only able to assess the exact needs of the community, but can also see that the money goes exactly where it should – to the children. My dream is that we would sell enough copies of this incredible song ‘Ave to Love’ to offer them a generous donation to their emergency aid fund for Haiti. But also that in raising profile for their child sponsorship program, we might encourage more people to sponsor and make a lasting impact on children’s lives. Over the course of my current tour we’ve seen a great response and have used the single and video to help recruit a further 50 sponsors. This will amount to an estimated £37,800 (based on the average sponsor’s three year commitment) of finance going straight into the relief of child poverty. I’m so excited and feel a real sense that this single is going to make more waves”.   With your help? Will you help us?
