Archie Roach performs 'Heal the People' on Rockwiz
Archie Roach appears in series 11 of the SBS music trivia show Rockwiz, performing 'Heal the People' with Craig Pilkington and the Bloodstream Choir (featuring actor and Indigenous Elder Uncle Jack Charles, Emma Donovan, Lou Bennett from Tiddas, David Leha, Veronica Wellings, Deline Briscoe and Nancy Bates).
This was the first time a choir had performed on the show and you can feel the power of the moment in both the singing and the gospel-inspired choreography.
Archie is backed by the highly talented Rockwiz band and the recording is of studio quality. The camerawork and vision mixing are also spot on.
The song comes from Archie's sixth studio album Into the Bloodstream (2012).
