Haiti charity single “Everybody Hurts” is out today

2010/02/07

X-factor founder Simon Cowell got lots of musicans together for the new version of R.E.M.`s track “Everybody Hurts” for the help for the people in Haiti. The single is out in the UK today digitally and as a cd single tomorrow. Other countries will follow next week.

Among the many stars who participated are Leona Lewis, Robbie Williams, Take That, Susan Boyle, Kylie Minogue, Mariah Carey, Alexandra Burke, Mika, JLS, Westlife, James Blunt, James Morrison, Rod Stewart, Cheryl Cole and many more. The song is already a classic song and one of the most successful by R.E.M. We hope the new version will collect a lot of money for the people in Haiti who really need it.

The Sun newspaper’s Helping Haiti fund will receive 50% of the single’s proceeds, with the other half going to the Disasters Emergency Committee.
