AMERICA'S 'WAKE UP' CALL!

The superstar group want a change of President - they're not the only ones...

AMERICA'S 'WAKE UP' CALL!
MARY J BLIGE, EVE and MISSY ELLIOTT have recorded an anti-BUSH song in a bid to sway US voters away from the American President.

The trio have re-recorded the 1960s hit 'Wake Up Everybody' for the benefit album, 'America Coming Together', which aims to promote a change of President.

Songs by [a][/a], Linda Ronstadt and Marvin Gaye are also included on the album.

Kenny 'Babyface' Edmonds is producing the track for the record, which was originally a hit by Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes, BBC news reports.

He said: "This song is the spirit of the country and all these artists have the will to change it."

Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen and The Dixie Chicks are taking part in anti-Bush gigs in the run up to the US elections in November, under the name Vote For Change.
