The 20th Man Foundation was the inspiration for Bettina Spivakovsky of Upfront Events to provide event management service and expertise for fund raising. Having a Bachelor of Music and Post Grad in film and TV the opportunity to also compose a song that would become synonymous with the charity so that the proceeds of the sale of the song would go towards the 20th Man Foundation was very important to Bettina. No other singer would do this song justice other than Lucy Gale so Bettina enlisted the help of members of the Art society Bettina set up called; The Loft and with the engineering and arrangements of all contributors: Lucy Gale, Dominic Ross Andrew Koikas, Emily Charmers, Andrew Burns, Anabelle Capac the song was produced.
Lucy provided the title Tears of a Child and Talia and Romina Rasso provided the visual for the 20th Man Foundation invitation for the event when this song will be sung live on stage as well as the photographic work for the CD single.
