The Voices Of Slavery
We caught up with Johnny Borrell at one-off gig...
Razorlight and Supergrass were among the amazing lineup for the charity gig 'The Voice Of Slavery' at Londons Kentish Town Forum on Sunday night (March 25).
The evening marked the bicentenary of the British Parliamentary act to abolish the slave trade, and aimed to highlight the fact there are still an estimated 12 million people enslaved in the world.
Finlay Quay, Ed Harcourt and Nerina Pallot were also amongst the names lending their musical support, while Rhys Ifans, Daniel Beddingfield and Samantha Morton hosted the evening.
Voice of Slavery, in support of the two charities Stop the Traffik and Anti-Slavery International, aims to show that slavery is still an ever prevalent issue, so what better way to raise awareness than through an event like this.
"Being in the public eye means that we are in a unique position to reach out to an audience about issues we care about," Razorlights Johnny Borrell told MTV News. "There is a massive change happening within our generation - we are the ones standing up and taking notice of the terrible things going on in this world, we're trying to club together and help make changes."
