(ANI): Singer Robbie Williams will reunite with his former band
Take That for a Helping Haiti single to help victims struck by the
massive earthquake that shook the Caribbean region. The singer, who
quit the group in 1995, will team up with the band for the cover
version of REM's ballad Everybody Hurts to help raise funds for
those hit by the 7.0-magnitude tremor on January 12.
"I'm very honoured to be asked to contribute to the single. We
can all do something to help the people of Haiti - and I urge
everyone to do what they can," the Daily Express quoted him as
telling the Sun.
The track will also feature other artists including Kylie
Minogue, Leona Lewis, JLS, James Blunt and Cheryl Cole. The idea
was said to be the brainchild of music mogul Simon Cowell who
teamed up with the Sun for the fund-raising effort.
