RETURN IS AN ORIGINAL SONG WRITTEN BY AUSTRALIAN COMPOSER/LYRICIST JESS NEWMAN TO BOOST YOUR SPIRITS AND RAISE FUNDS FOR THE AUSTRALIAN PERFORMING ARTS COMMUNITY.
Over 100 artists came together to create this video to brighten up lives and to highlight the talents of our performing arts community. In this challenging time our actors, singers, dancers, creatives and technicians need your financial assistance to survive. Your donation will be distributed across the Actors and Entertainers Benevolent Funds, Trusts and organisations around Australia and the Wilin Centre for Indigenous Arts.
THIS PROJECT INCLUDES THE WORK OF OVER 100 ARTISTS WHO HAVE CONTRIBUTED THEIR TALENT TO CELEBRATE THE BREADTH, DEPTH AND DIVERSITY OF OUR INCREDIBLE INDUSTRY.
