Dist: Universal Music Canada

War Child Canada was founded in 1999 and in the last decade has grown into one of the most respected and influential humanitarian organizations in Canada. Working with local people, War Child Canada focuses on protecting children’s rights, providing an education and teaching skills that will allow them to build a brighter future for their families and themselves. War Child: 10 marks the 10th anniversary of the charity’s founding in Canada. The album will feature a selection of some of the extraordinary music donated to the cause over the years, as well as exclusive new recordings. It includes music from some of the world’s biggest artists, including Coldplay, Radiohead and a brand new recording from Wolfmother. Beth Orton appears with the awesome track ‘Oooh Child’ which is a cover of the The Five Stairsteps track.

Known as The First Family of Soul, The Five Stairsteps were an American Chicago soul group made up five of Betty and Clarence Burke Sr.’s six children: Alohe, Jean, Clarence Jr., James, Dennis, and Kenneth “Keni”, and briefly, Cubie. They are best known for the 1970 song Ooh Child, listed #392 on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
