July 29. Day 210. You're the Voice

No-one should have been surprised that John Fanham was a special guest at The Voice concert to raise awareness about domestic violence. The Voice is, after all, his anthem. Except everyone was surprised and you can't really blame them. After all, who has one of Australia's best-known and best-loved entertainers on the bill and doesn't tell anyone? Well, Queensland Music Festival director artistic director Katie Noonan apparently. Well played Katie. The point was to shine light on and unite Australians in one voice against domestic violence. Letting the world know Farnham would be there,  risks diluting the focus. And when you've already got Noonan, Kate Ceberano and Isaiah in your program you've already scored the public's attention. Throwing in Farnham was genius. It was a thing of great power and beauty. Let's hope it achieves its stated aim.
