There are now more slaves in the world than at the height of the ‘slave trade’ of the 18th and 19th centuries.

Will we set them free?

In 2018 Thomas Nettesheim set about organising a charity event in Florida, raising money and awareness to help charities dealing with the awful reality of modern-day slavery.

Michael had long been wanting to write a song engaging this issue and so offered to write and record a song for the event. Together with his long-term producer, nicholas alexander, and Nashville singer Natalie Martin, they set about making ‘Free?’

All profits from the song will go to charities in the UK and US tackling this issue.

Will you help set them free?

Money raised will go to the following charities:

Tamar (London)

The Snowdrop Project (Sheffield)

Red Community (Wales)

If you would like your donation to go to one particular charity please let us know!
