'Minute of silence' for Europe's refugees tops Austrian iTunes chart

Yahoo! Music News - Fri, 08/21/2015 - 19:51
By Kieran Guilbert LONDON (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - A minute's silence recorded by an Austrian artist to protest against the treatment of migrants in Europe and raise money for refugees in a center near Vienna has topped the country's iTunes chart, despite only being released on Friday. Proceeds from Raoul Haspel's track Schweigeminute ("Minute's Silence"), which beat German DJ Robin Schulz to capture top spot through pre-orders alone earlier this week, will go toward aid for people in the asylum processing center in Traiskirchen. More than 2,000 refugees in Traiskirchen have been sleeping in the open for weeks, braving heat of around 40 degrees Celsius and rainstorms wrapped in blankets on the grass, and Amnesty International last week called their treatment "scandalous".
