The Latest from the Home Run

Delta Goodrem's Charity Single Has Pushed Tones And I Out Of Number 1

Well it was bound to happen, Tones And I "Dance Monkey" has been knocked off the top spot on the iTunes Charts, and it only took this news song 3 hours after being released to do so.

I'm talking about Delta Goodrem's Bushfire Relief song "Let It Rain".

Delta debuted the song on Instagram around a week ago along with a video, urging everyone to donate to Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund.

Everyday we are all feeling what’s happening to our beautiful country, our home. I wrote this song about an hour ago after seeing yet another video of the firefighters continuing to fight the fires for us. The extremes that many families are experiencing leaves me with no words. I send all my love and I am praying everyday. Please donate to the Red Cross to help. @redcrossau Let it rain I can’t stay in silence hoping that this will go but it won’t slow It wont leave here today we walk on, our great land breathing in the ashes of our home town and It keeps on raging, here today They say keep on praying, we are and we’re waiting, for the rain Let it rain, here today Can it rain, here today Thank you to our saviours we all know that you’re saving you’re saving the day and we grateful for the heat that you’re taking away They say keep on praying, we are and we’re waiting, for the rain Let it rain, here today Can it rain, here today #australia #bushfires #australiafires
