Various projects are being undertaken by Rob Halligan

COVENTRY-based singer/songwriter Rob Halligan travelled to New York where he filmed a video for his song "Streets Of This Town". The video was partly shot at Ground Zero, where Rob lost his father during the September 11 attack. On Rob's return to the UK, the singer/songwriter gathered musicians together under the name Playing For Change to record a single to raise money for victims of the tsunami which hit South East Asia on Boxing Day. The single, "Stand Together", went on to make 30 in the UK indie charts and raised £3,000 for Tsunami victims. Said Halligan, "'Stand Together' is a song about hope and about rising up out of a bad situation - about pulling together to make a difference."
