CHRISTINE ANU & DENI HINES ARE TAKIN IT TO THE STREETS
Two of Australia’s most loved and successful female recording artists, Deni Hines and Christine Anu, are
takin it to the streets again in 2009 after the success of their 2008 East‐Coast of Australia tour.
“On the first tour we had such a great time, that we wanted to do it all over again, especially when we
have such a great cause to promote such as the Salvation Army and Oasis Youth Support Network. We feel
privileged to be able to help” says Christine & Deni.
In a two hour show, this sassy duo will perform their classic hits and favourite timeless songs along with
some special duets, including their own rendition of the Doobie Brother’s hit TAKIN IT TO THE STREETS.
While promoting their 2008 tour, Deni and Christine so happened to be performing one of their show
duets TAKIN IT TO THE STREETS on the Today Show (Nine Network, Australia). On the same show was a
heartfelt segment about the plight of homelessness in Australia accompanied by Captain Paul Mould of
the Salvation Army’s Oasis Youth Support Network, who take care and provide much needed services for
the homeless and youth of Australia (who come from all walks of life.)
No less than 5 minutes after walking off set, Christine and Deni turned to each other and said “we’ve got
to do something to help” and the recording of TAKIN IT TO THE STREETS was set in motion.
Deni and Christine will release their version of TAKIN IT TO THE STREETS on 15 November 2008
(Nationwide) with fifty percent (50%) of profits going to the Salvation Army’s Youth Homelessness Oasis
Foundation and the Everyone Is Homeless Fund.

Homeless Fund, please refer to www.oasis.salvos.org.au
In the ABS Census 2001 (The 2006 Census data has not been finalized), there were 100,000 homeless
people (men, women and children) across Australia, one third (36,173) are youth between 12‐24 years of
age. Only 14.25% of homeless people were able to stay in services funded through SAAP (Supported
Accommodation Assistance Program) jointly funded by both the Commonwealth and State Governments.
Christine and Deni would like to thank the following companies and people for donating their time and
services free of charge of the purposes of this donation campaign drive ‐ 301 Studios, Sing Sing Studios,
