Can John Farnham’s You’re The Voice Supercharge The Yes Vote For A Voice To Parliament?

Australian legend John Farnham is lending his voice to the “Yes” Campaign. He’s given The Uluru Dialogue, the organisation dedicated to advancing the Uluru Statement, permission to use the song in a new campaign film.

The song is paired with iconic moments in Australian history and it’s a bit of a tearjerker. So far, it’s proven to be a powerful collaboration, racking up over a million views on Instagram alone. But will it be enough to swing sentiment, when polls are increasingly predicting a “No” vote?
