A group of talented young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander performers in Logan have created an original song and video clip that offers hope and support to local young people.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community Elders and families worked together with headspace Meadowbrook and Indigenous Hip Hop Projects to create the catchy track and its video, which was also filmed in Logan.

Lyrics were written and performed by the young people and the Elders with a focus on how important it is to keep bodies and minds strong and healthy. It also emphasises to young people that if they're having trouble, ‘support's not far’.

The initiative is the latest delivered by Indigenous Hip Hop Projects music and multi-media program. The program involves mentoring young people over a week to produce a song and video clip for presentation to their community, and for subsequent use and distribution in health promotion.

The Logan: City of Choice Leadership Team - which, with support from Logan City Council, provided support for the launch party earlier this month - congratulated all involved.
