South African Band Joins Canadian Coalition

South African Band, Jam On Tuesday, joins forces with musicians from around the world to fight child poverty.

Kitchener, Ont., Canada, August 03, 2007 --( South Africa's Jam On Tuesday is one of sixteen international artists with a music video featured on the new Worldview website in the hope of ending extreme child poverty once and for all.

The SAMA nominated band comprises: Gill Persson - lead vocals and rhythm guitar. Lorens Persson - drums. Guillaume Mouton - bass guitar and backing vocals. Kurt Slabbert - lead and rhythm guitar and backing vocals.

In addition to allowing the use of their music video for “Coming Back”, lead singer Gill Persson shares her thoughts about child poverty on the site. Her plea for compassion for some of the world's poorest children ends with the question “Why don't you consider doing what you can to sponsor one of these incredible gifts?”

Worldview is a volunteer movement based in Canada that teaches about child sponsorship and encourages radical generosity. It is not a charity and it doesn't accept donations.
