Pete OBrien_We All Live In The Same Town_.mp3

 

Year of Change:-

December 2010 saw the return of the big wet so the Aboriginals call it.  

With ¾ of the state of Queensland under  flood water.

This also happened in Pete’s home town of Bundaberg, and why he sat down and wrote a song which went on to do wonderful things around the world.

 

''We All Live In The Same Town'' was written in Petes Bedroom as the rain poured down outside. 

He saw the shock ,horror and pain of people in town that lost everything when their houses went under water. 

He wrote the song, then put it up on YOU TUBE to show the world that we needed help here.

 

With over 14000 hits in just two weeks the song had to be recorded and sent to radio as a fund raiser for these people he saw .

It still gets daily hits.
