South African celebrities have thrown their charitable might behind a musical collaboration, A Song of Hope, to help mark one of Joburg’s oldest non-governmental organisations’ 100th birthday.

Johannesburg Child Welfare, which will celebrate its centenary on December 6, helps underprivileged children, families and communities in distress – last year it reached 45000 people in need. Joining forces to create awareness for the organisation’s milestone were local musicians, comedians and actors including Danny K, Tamara Dey, RJ Benjamin, David Kabuka and Emmanuel Castis.

The child welfare’s Star Choir was also involved in the project, which was unveiled for the first time yesterday.
