OK, first things first, we must preface this post with the fact that the song you are about to hear is for charity and, more specifically, for a Cancer charity. An incredibly noble cause and one well worth supporting in any way possible.
A whole host of female (mainly American) singers clearly agree and they’ve come together through the medium of song to bring you one of the most incredible examples of excessive singing this side of ‘When You Believe’ (the Mariah & Whitney version obviously. Leon Jackson couldn’t emote his way out of a paper bag).
The song is called ‘Just Stand Up’ and features (deep breath), Mariah, Beyonce, Mary J. Blige, Rihanna, Leona Lewis, Ciara, Fergie, Natasha Bedingfield, Carrie Underwood, Ashanti, Melissa Etheridge, Sheryl Crow, Miley Cyrus, Keyshia Cole and LeAnn Rimes. Phew. Prizes will be given to the person who can figure out which global superstar (and Carrie Underwood) is singing which line. Picking out Mariah doesn’t count, her voice could be heard in a war zone.
One thing though; why do all charity singles have to be so dire?
The single is currently available to buy on iTunes.
