'Faith, Hope, Love': Stan Walker Donating Money From New EP To Christchurch Families
Stan Walker's new EP was created in response to the Christchurch terror attacks that left 51 people dead.
Walker -- who shot to fame on Australian Idol -- dropped by 'The Project' to explain how he used music to try and heal some of the hurt felt by his fellow New Zealanders in the wake of the mosque shootings.
"When it all happened, the country was in shock, we were all in shock," Walker said.
The singer said that he was saddened by the response of "some people trying to make it about them" during the aftermath and thought very carefully about how he could best use his platform and support the Muslim families of the victims.
"The way I know how to help people and bring healing to people is through my music, so I wanted to do this and give hope," he said of his new EP.
"Where talking can fail, hopefully, the music can pick up the pieces in some way," said Walker.
The devout Christian wrote on his Instagram last month that 'Faith, Hope, Love' was released at the last minute with the help of some talented friends.
"Also part of the proceeds made off of this EP will be going to the Muslim families in Christchurch. So know that every time you listen to these songs or buy them, you will be giving back to them," said Walker.
The musician also talked about how his life was changed in 2017 when he was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer that had already claimed the lives of more than 20 people in his family.
"It's been awesome, I feel really blessed and privileged to do what I do," said Walker of his incredible recovery and next step of his career.
