Justin Bieber is to front the advertising campaign for a new Christmas charity CD being released in New Zealand.
The teen singer will appear in ads for the Starship Christmas Album 2012, which will raise money for the Starship Foundation, the fundraising branch of New Zealand’s biggest pediatric hospital, the Starship Children’s Hospital.
Music industry veteran Paul Ellis worked in conjunction with Universal Music and Starship Foundation to develop The Starship Christmas Album 2012. Bieber’s television commercial will debut in November to support sales of the Starship Christmas Album 2012.
Along with Bieber the debut album features some of the biggest names in the music industry including Queen, Lady Gaga (featuring Space Cowboy), Elton John, Ronan Keating, Hayley Westenra, Michael Jackson, Maroon 5, Adeaze, The Jackson Five, Tiki Taane, OneRepublic, and Starship’s own Lucy Lawless. All the artists have all generously provided their songs royalty free to support Starship.
The Starship Christmas Album 2012 will retail for $16.00 with all profits going to the Starship Foundation. The album will be available nationwide from November 19 through The Warehouse stores nationally and for digital download from www.umusic.co.nz.
“Starship is our national children’s hospital and every day its extraordinarily talented staff do extraordinary things to look after our precious children when they need it most,” said Starship Foundation CEO Brad Clark. “The proceeds from this album will help support the amazing work they do for patients and their families. We’re very grateful to the extraordinary lineup of artists who have generously contributed their music – they’ve already made this Christmas very special for Starship.”
