The star hopes to release an all-star ’From The Bottom Of My Heart’…
Michael Jackson has written a song for the victims of HURRICANE KATRINA.
A spokeswoman for the singer revealed yesterday (September 6) that he is hoping to record the track – expected to be called ’From The Bottom Of My Heart’ – with other artists and release it as a charity single.
In a statement on his official website Michael Jackson[/a] 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.
”She said: “Mr. Michael Jackson will be enlisting, within the next 24 hours, the involvement of other recording superstars to join him in this project. It is his intention to record this record within the next two weeks.”
Michael 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.”
The song is set to be released on 2 Sea Records – the label owned by Prince Abdulla 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.
