War Child and music go way back

To 1995 and the Balkans bloodbath happening on our doorstep. Whilst politicians did nothing, musicians like Oasis, Radiohead, Sir Paul McCartney and Paul Weller came together and did something remarkable.

They recorded our iconic 'HELP' album in just three days. It's still the charity record that all others are compared to.

Since then, we've enjoyed a special relationship with some of the most legendary artists and hottest new acts.

Our albums and gigs have raised money and awareness for our vital work. And we've pioneered using the power of the music itself as a tool for therapy and for taking our message to a mass audience.
