Australia has faced it’s most devastating bushfire season yet over the past few months destroying our land and wildlife and this weekend a massive concert is taking place to help raise funds for the recovery process.
Fire Fight Australia is taking place at ANZ Stadium in Sydney this Sunday with some of the biggest names in the music business joining together to put on what is sure to be one of the best concerts of all time.
The acts come from not only Australia but around the world including Olivia Newton John, 5SOS, Delta Goodrem, Guy Sebastian, Queen with Adam Lambert and the one and only Michael Bublé.
Ahead of his appearance at the concert Bublé joined the Kyle and Jackie O Show this morning to tell us why he joined such an important cause.

“How’d you get involved?” Kyle asked.
“A long, long time ago I started to break my manager’s balls about wanting to do something. I felt horrible,” Michael told us this morning.
He told us that over the years Australia has become like another home to him and he couldn’t just do nothing as we burned.
“It’s been 18-years since I’ve been coming here so in that time I’ve made so many friends, you’re like my family here. I really felt a lot of sympathy for people who have been displaced and even all of these poor animals, just anything I could do I wanted to do.”
The ‘Haven’t Met You Yet’ singer was so proud to see other celebrities getting involved and donating money to help our country and he’s just so pleased that when times get tough, people are always willing to lend a hand.
“It made me really proud to see people that I admire so much, people like Elton John, who have been so good about donating and putting their money where their mouth is,” Bublé added.
