With all the differing opinions posted on social media due to the marriage equality postal survey, Melbourne musician Johnny Rock voices for artists to spread love with #lovesongsforequality.
With only one intention – love – Johnny recorded and performed The Beatles classic, 'Real Love'.

If you want to get involved, film yourself either singing or miming to a love song, brighten your social feeds and spread love with #lovesongsforequality.
