Hold Back My Heart Track By Michael Johns Goes To Air In October…On Qantas!

Date September 2, 2012

Some fantastic news!!
Qantas (widely regarded as the world’s leading long distance airline) has programmed Michael’s track “Hold Back My Heart” from his debut album of the same name, onto inflight fmQ (Qantas Radio), hosted by Robbie Buck.

It will go to air in October, so if you’re flying with them, be sure to tune in and let friends and family know too! We want to get this heard all over the Qantas skies!  We’d love to see a photo of anyone listening to the track on the plane and we will feature it on the blog along with your comments!! 🙂

It’s a gorgeous tune which shows off MJ’s vocals to perfection and one of my personal favourites.

For anyone who isn’t familiar with Hold Back My Heart, the entire album is streaming on our player on our blog’s homepage, so take a listen to the track and buy the album from iTunes and Amazon!

Read an excellent review of the album, including each track, by our good friend, Tania Hussain.

Qantas knows an amazing voice when they hear one!! Kudos to them and huge congratulations to our supertalented MJ!!  

Last but not least..big thanks to Sonya Ottaway, our friend and president of Netball America, who pitched this to Qantas. We love ya Sonya!!

They have given out approximately 500,000 hearing aids to people in need around the world and much more is planned!  Starkey also brings understanding and awareness to all of us, “So The World May Hear”.

Check out their very inspiring mission on their website, Facebook page and YouTube videos.
