Prince William has given his support to a new charity CD that features The Smiths' Johnny Marr, Jools Holland and others – in the name of the homeless.

1969: Key To Change features songs from that year performed by today’s stars to raise money for Centrepoint, of which Prince William is patron. The charity aims to improve the lives of socially excluded, homeless young people. It provides a range of accommodation based services, including emergency nightshelters and short stay hostels, specialist projects for care leavers, ex-offenders, young single parents, foyers and supported flats and floating support services. Princess Diana was patron of the organization at the time of her death.

“The charity helps people who through no fault of their own get into difficulty, and it all happens under our noses. It is very important now to help these people,” says Jools Holland. “Royal involvement does help a charity. The profile of the charity is raised and when someone like Prince William are involved it increases the chance of it being a success.”
