A tragedy happens and a group of musicians get to together and create a song about it. Is this really for a good cause or just a money-making, publicity scheme?
Recently there was the release of the "Never in our lifetime" single by SA musicians coming together to support the fight against xenophobia.
LIVE dedicated a single, "Overcome" to victims of the 9/11 tragedy.
We have the Live Earth concerts that are supposed to help create awareness about being eco-conscious and eco-friendly yet attendees seem to care more about who's on the performance line-up.
Are these music industry responses to tragedies and human failures really effective or do they have ulterior motives?
