Community Day for Brisbane’s Homeless with Wesley Mission & RRT

The Wesley Mission Emergency Relief Organisation is committed to assist people who have fallen on hard times and can’t support themselves. Their services extend to homeless people. They provide food and necessities, along with financial assistance and psychological services.

In late December, RRT in South East Queensland worked with the Wesley Mission to give the community in inner suburbs of Brisbane City a chance to mingle in a non-threatening way. They enjoyed a range of activities, two RRT Bands and free lunch.

    What a great performance! Care and compassion shown to all mankind. In developed countries where else can you consistently find such effort put in by a global team!
    Can we see Lyrics for all the songs?

    1. Lyrics for Careless Whisper says:

      I feel so unsure
      As I take your hand and lead you to the dance floor;
      As the music dies something in your eyes
      Calls to mind a silver screen,
      And you’re it’s sad good-bye.

      I’m never gonna dance again, guilty feet have got no rhythm,
      Though it’s easy to pretend, I know you’re not a fool.
      I should have known better than to cheat a friend,
      And waste a chance that I’ve been given,
      So I’m never gonna dance again
      The way I dance with you.

      Time can never mend
      The careless whisper of a good friend;
      To the heart and mind ignorance is kind
      There’s no comfort in the truth, pain is all you’ll find.

      I’m never gonna dance again, guilty feet have got no rhythm,
      Though it’s easy to pretend, I know you’re not a fool.
      I should have known better than to cheat a friend,
      And waste a chance that I’ve been given,
      So I’m never gonna dance again
      The way I dance with you, oh.

      Tonight the music seems so loud, I wish that we could lose this crowd,
      Maybe it’s better this way, if we’d hurt each other with the things we want to say.
      We could have been so good together, we could have lived this dance for ever,
      But now who’s gonna dance with me.
      Please dance.

      I’m never gonna dance again, guilty feet have got no rhythm,
      Though it’s easy to pretend, I know you’re not a fool.
      I should have known better than to cheat a friend,
      And waste a chance that I’ve been given,
      So I’m never gonna dance again
      The way I dance with you.

    Congrats to the guy in the centre for keeping his cool when the breeze folded his cue sheet in half during Mexicoma. Pinch some pegs from mums washing basket and attach them to your music stands.:-) Great to have on hand for lots of things!

  7. Alon says:

    Excellent! Being outdoors and adding music might be less intimidating for some, than to enter a building not knowing what to expect. There are huge numbers of people that need help and this is one way of showing compassion and kindness compassion without any strings attached.
    A lot of hard work would have gone into this.Thank you to everyone involved..
    How do you practise the music when the venue is like this and how do you know what numbers to cater for?
