London, Apr 20 (ANI): Brit singer songwriter Rod Stewart has started a new campaign to get musicians to busk on the streets for charity.
Stewart, 64, who beat thyroid cancer, became a patron of Busking Cancer 2009.
The weeklong event aims to raise cash for Cancer Research UK through busking.
"When it comes to busking, I'm your man. That's how I started in the early 1960s on the streets of Paris," the Sun quoted him as saying.
"It's what music is all about - just getting out there and singing or playing for the sheer joy of it," he added.
Busking Cancer week runs from June 20 to 27. (ANI)
