Default Jon Bon Jovi Added To Haiti Benefit Single

This is from MTV News.

Jan 25 2010 9:03 AM EST

Miley Cyrus, Mariah Carey and Jon Bon Jovi have joined the list of stars pitching in on "American Idol" judge Simon Cowell's charity single for Haiti relief. According to England's The Sun, the singers will appear on the cover of R.E.M.'s "Everybody Hurts," which will also feature famous Brits Susan Boyle, Leona Lewis and Rod Stewart.

"It's amazing these great singers are clearing their schedules to make this happen," Cowell told the paper, which is helping to organize the single. "I just found out Mariah has changed her schedule to be able to do this too."

Carey's and Cyrus' participation in the single could not be confirmed at press time, but an Island Def Jam rep did verify the news of Bon Jovi's appearance.

"It says such a lot that everyone is working so hard to help Haiti," Cowell told the Sun. "This is something that really matters to us all, and I'm so grateful for the support we are getting."

An unidentified source close to Cowell told the paper that Carey was very eager to pitch in on the all-star project. "Mariah was brilliant, she wanted to help in any way she could," the source said. "Her name gives the single another great boost."

The recording of the song kicked off in London over the weekend with "X Factor" judge Cheryl Cole and British act JLS, whose Oritse Williams lost relatives in the 7.0 earthquake that has so far claimed the lives of at least 150,000. Also expected to record their bits soon are Take That, Michael Bublé, Westlife, Alexandra Burke, James Morrison, Mika and James Blunt. All proceeds will be split between the Sun's Helping Haiti fund and the official Disasters Emergency Committee appeal. It has not yet been announced when the single will be released.

Friday night's all-star "Hope for Haiti Now" event has set a record for funds raised by public giving by a telethon with $58 million and counting. The iTunes album of the music from the show has already hit #1, notching the biggest one-day album pre-order in iTunes history.

Miley Cyrus? Suddenly I feel that the single is less appealing, even though both Jon and my idol is there *sigh*

Frankly, it's for a good enough cause that I don't care who else is on this particular single.

I don't knock her appearance. She'll bring in a lot of potential buyers which is what is important.

Cool news. Good to see those 3 additions they are clearly the biggest three artists out of the bunch.

I was actually really surprised that Bon Jovi wasn't on the telethon concert Friday night, esp. when i saw some people were performing from NYC. When I saw Justin Timberlake doing Hallelujah I immediately wondered why JBJ wasn't on even alone and thought how he would have nailed that song.

The all request hour, the girl in the front row has just asked for Blood on Blood, ok, Merry Christmas young lady!" Amazing <3

Exactly what I thought Lizz. I wondered why the band wasn't there - or at least Jon and Richie.

They might have been on their way to Germany for that Superman Tonight TV appearance? What day was that on again?
