Fans of girl power, chick rock and hoochie hop will be overjoyed to learn that 15 of the most popular female singers have teamed up to record the benefit song "Just Stand Up," for exclusive release on iTunes on Sept. 2.
The song features Mariah Carey, Beyonce, Mary J. Blige, Rihanna, Fergie, Sheryl Crow, Miley Cyrus, Melissa Etheridge, Ashanti, Natasha Bedingfield, Keyshia Cole, Ciara, Leona Lewis, LeAnn Rimes and Carrie Underwood.
All sales of the single will benefit Stand Up to Cancer, a cancer research program that calls on the entertainment industry to help fight cancer.The song concept was birthed by Antonio "L.A." Reid, who produced it with Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds.
Better still (unless you like good music), all 15 singers will share the stage to perform the song live on Sept. 5 during the Stand Up to Cancer television special, set to air simultaneously on ABC, NBC and CBS. Other stars expected to turn out for the hour-long fund- and awareness-raising program include Jennifer Aniston, Lance Armstrong, Katie Couric, Sally Field, Salma Hayek, Meryl Streep, Forest Whitaker and Reese Witherspoon.
Man, I can’t wait to hear that Sally Field/Forest Whitaker duet!
(I kid...it's a good cause...support it!)
