'Bloomin' Beautiful Song'

BBBF received funding from RADF through South Burnett Regional Council and Arts Queensland towards song writing workshops with the children of Blackbutt and Benarkin. This song was then produced and a music video clip was made. Watch the behind the scenes documentation of the project here. A promotion of the filming was also uploaded with the chorus for people to learn prior to the filming at the Qld Family Fun Day which can be viewed here. Special thanks to Melanie Doheny for her contribution to the project and resulting clips.
