there and at 'em''
is a line from musician Mike Brady's most famous song, Up There Cazaly,
credited with being the most popular song ever recorded by an Australian
artist in Australia, but it could apply equally to Brady himself.
most successful jingle-maker has been ''out there'' for worthy causes for
many years - patron of the Bali Children Foundation and Australian
Huntington's Disease Association (Victoria), supporter of the Fairhaven Surf
Life Saving Club and Melbourne Legacy, celebrity ambassador for both
Australia Day and the Yooralla Society.
He has been a board director of
Variety Victoria for many years and a board member of the Prostate Cancer
Foundation Australia for which he wrote one of his catchy jingles, Talk
About It. Brady, who was made an AM for his work for the community and
music once said ‘'Entertainers often get asked to perform to support
charities, I've taken them seriously.''
