Songbirds of Childers

Some projects warm the heart and change lives and this one sure did that! Melinda and her team managed to write ten songs in three days with fifteen women from the Childers area, then perform them live… then record demos of all songs the following three days! This was followed by performances at Women of the World Festival, Childers Festival Vintners Secret and Crush Festival Bundaberg…. Connecting senior women across the region in song and performance, this project received extra funding and performances due to it’s amazing outcomes. These women’s lives were changed for the better, building resilience, new friendships and new skills as they sang their way around the festival circuit performing their own co-written songs! The project was also the subject of a study by Wendy Masden (Masters), Central Queensland University investigating the positive effects on both singing and song-writing. Photos and videos below:
