Michael Jackson has announced a host of stars lining up to work with him on an upcoming charity single for the victims of Hurricane Katrina.

The star has said that Jay-Z, Mariah Carey, Missy Elliott, R Kelly, Wyclef Jean, Lenny Kravitz, Lauryn Hill, Mary J. Blige and funk legend James Brown will be joining together to work on the track, which has a working title of ‘From The Bottom Of My Heart’.

Also set to contribute to the record are Snoop Dogg, Kenneth ‘Babyface’ Edmonds, The O’Jays, Ciara and Yolanda Adams.

‘From The Bottom Of My Heart’ is to be released through 2 Seas Records, which is owned by Prince Abdullah Hamad Alkhalifa of Bahrain.

All proceeds from the sale of the record will be donated to the victims of Hurricane Katrina.

Michael Jackson has been living in the Middle East since his acquittal on child molestation charges in June.

In a statement on his official website mjjsource.com , a spokesperson for the star said: “Mr Jackson is continuing to reach out to artists who would like to work with him in this project, which he humbly hopes will make a tremendous difference to all individuals who have been affected by this tragedy.”

As previously reported by NME.COM, the spokeswoman has said that Jackson is hoping to replicate the success of 1985’s ’We Are The World’, which he wrote and produced, and which raised millions of dollars for aid to Africa.

Jackson added: “It pains me to watch the human suffering taking place in the Gulf region of my country. My heart and prayers go out to every individual who has had to endure the pain and suffering caused by this tragedy. I will be reaching out to others within the music industry to join me in helping to bring relief and hope to these resilient people who have lost everything.”
