TV2 Song: I'm Free
decided to refresh its on-air imagery for 2012, we considered
hundreds of songs that encapsulated the spirit of the channel:
vibrancy, freedom and a sense of playfulness.
We chose I'm Free (originally written by The Rolling Stones in 1965), getting permission from Mick Jagger and Keith Richards to re-record the song for modern Kiwi audiences.
The track was performed by Goldenhorses Kirsten Morrell for the new TV2 brand films that will be seen on the channel from January.
Now, fans of the song are able to download it from iTunes
All profits from the recording will be donated to a charitable organisation in Christchurch called CHART .
The music community has been has been hit particularly hard by the devastating earthquakes over the last year with live performance venues, clubs and pubs destroyed, equipment and gear trapped inside condemned buildings, recording studios and rehearsal spaces demolished.
An important voice and vital form of expression, part of what makes Christchurch unique, is missing.
CHART is an organisation which aims to bring the music back to the troubled city.
