Gary Pinto has outstanding talent, and a heart to match

On Saturday, May 9, Gary will be hosting a free online concert for Project Compassion, bringing Australian and International music stars directly from their loungeroom, to yours!

The lineup will be announced shortly, but we wanted to take a chance to let you know about Gary, and why he's so generously putting on this show with Caritas Australia.

Gary Pinto is an Aria-Award winning and multi-platinum selling recording artist, and a musical mentor to the stars.

Having written songs for the likes of Jimmy Barnes, Guy Sebastian and Christine Anu, Gary recently penned a tune for Caritas Australia, in support of our annual Lenten Appeal, Project Compassion.

After Walk With Me was released, the seriousness of the COVID-19 pandemic in Australia and overseas really hit home for Gary.

He wanted to go further for Caritas, to help the most vulnerable communities around the world whose lives could be devastated by COVID-19. And he wanted to connect with all of us at home in the best way he knew how: through sharing the joy of music.

So, the idea of Walk With Me: Loungeroom Sessions was born, proving that Gary's heart is as big as his talent.
