After the floods of 2011, Sony Music released the Flood Relief album with money raised going to the Sony Foundation. The Sony Foundations selected the Salvation Army as the benefactor of the money raised and the state-of-the-art Sound Point facility in Goodna, Queensland was built with the proceeds.

Sony Music Chairman and CEO and Sony Foundation Governor Denis Handlin was in Goodna yesterday for the official opening of the new centre where Sony artist Pete Murray also performed.

600 homes in Goodna were affected by the Queensland floods. It was decided to build the Sound Point facility for the benefit of the whole community.

In 2009, following the Victorian bushfires, Sony raised $1.7 million from the sale of the benefit album ‘Bushfire AID’ for the Sony Foundation to distribute. Denis also drove that project.

The Sony Foundation is the charitable arm of the Sony group of companies in Australia. The Foundation has contributed over $12 million to charity over the past decade.

Four Corners Sony Music Expose Is Just The Tip of the Iceberg

Let me start by saying I am not a fan of ‘Trial By Media’. The objective for a television program is eyeballs, not a legal conclusion. That is precisely what a huge brand name like Sony Music can deliver. Four Corners simply opened a door and allowed viewers a peak inside the entertainment industry and it was pretty ugly.
