Mount Annan pop trio pens song for drought relief


It's what we've all been wishing for - and it is also the name of Like Angels new song.

The Mount Annan pop trio penned and recorded the song to raise much-needed funds for drought relief.

Band member Emmalisa Engelbrecht said she and her sisters, Sarah and Tahlia, were struck by how many people had been affected by the drought.

"We wrote the song because we had been seeing a lot of stuff about the drought and then the bushfires hit as well - so we just wanted to do something to help people who are struggling," she said.

"We have heard so many people complaining about the rain when we do get any so we wanted the song to be about how much we need both rain and sunshine in our lives.

"And that goes for our emotions as well - you need that balance."

The song can be streamed on all music platforms with all proceeds going to drought relief charities.

Ms Engelbrecht said she and her sisters were affected by stories about the drought.

"It has hit close to home because there are people struggling in Macarthur too," she said.

"But you see all these farmers and communities on the news as well - it's heartbreaking.

"We wanted to do anything we could to help."

Like Angels sing contemporary pop music.

Ms Engelbrecht said she worked collaboratively with her siblings on their songs.

"We have a lot of harmonies - being sisters that's just how we like to sing," she said.

"We have been singing our whole lives but this year we have spent a lot of time in the studio."

Ms Engelbrecht urged locals to get behind the song.

"The more streams it gets, the more money we can donate to these charities," she said.

"It's free to stream but every stream makes money which we will pass on to the organisations.

"It's just another avenue for people to give these people some support.

"Our hearts, thoughts and prayers have really gone out to these communities and we really hope this can help."
