R.E.M. REMAKE CHARITY SINGLE IS READY
The UK's charity single for Haiti is ready for release. It's a remake of R.E.M.'s 1993 hit, "Everybody Hurts," featuring Mariah Carey, Rod Stewart, Susan Boyle, Jon Bon Jovi, Kylie Minogue, Robbie Williams and others. The session was organized by Simon Cowell at the request of British Prime Minister Gordon Brown. You'll be able to download the single on Sunday, then pick up a CD version on Monday. So far, there are no plans to make the single available here, so check the import shops and the Internet.
