Pop country singer-songwriter, Jade Holland has released her charitable new single, Fight For It, with all proceeds going to the Mental Awareness Foundation, of which she is an ambassador. The single shines light on mental health and encourages people to keep fighting. It’s our Song of the Day!
Holland says, “Fight For It is for every single person who has lost someone to suicide. It’s a song that we all can relate to. We’ve all been there. This is our time to stand together and sing for those who are no longer here. This is our anthem now.”
Being one of the first music artists to go on the road post lockdown, Holland took her Resilience Tour throughout regional Queensland in late 2020 in partnership with the Mental Awareness Foundation, and witnessed, firsthand, the power that music had to reconnect and heal a local community. It was these places and faces that inspired her to sit down late one night after a show in Mount Isa, where she wrote the first three words, Fight For It.
Fight For It was recorded and produced across time zones in a unique fashion thanks to border restrictions and lockdowns. Co-written by Holland with Sinead Burgess and Bryce Sainty, it was produced by David “Messy” Mescon at Messy Room Studios in Nashville with ARIA Award-winning artist, Tyrone Noonan, appearing on the backing vocals with the chorus vocals recorded in the Pushworth office with the whole team jumping in to help out.
The Australian country star will make history on Sunday, October 10 as she debuts Fight For It at the annual Walk for Awareness event in Brisbane in front of tens of thousands of Queenslanders. The official video will be filmed that day with a cast of thousands – go to https://www.walkforawareness.org.au/ for more information.
Holland has been consistently sharing her story with audiences across the globe over the past three years with singles like, the multi-million streaming Drive Thru, International Award winning That’s The Wine, the 2019 charting Townsville flood appeal charity song Lives on the Lawn and 2020’s breakout hit, Do It Right. She released her second album Dream Wild in 2019 to critical acclaim.
