Simon Cowell's Haiti record

Simon Cowell is putting together a charity single in aid of victims of the Haiti earthquakes. The music mogul is keen to help aid relief in the Caribbean state - which has been ravaged by 2 earthquakes in the past 8 days, leaving hundreds of thousands dead - and decided to recruit an all star cast to record a charity single to raise money. Speaking at the National Television Awards (NTAs), he told BANG Showbiz: "It's very, very short notice. We made the decision today, so I've got to get it all together in about 48 hours. "It's going to feature as many people as possible. I haven't made up my mind on the song yet, I've got a couple of ideas. It will be a cover version, yeah." The reality TV megastar added that while he hadn't made any calls to artists at the time, he would assemble as large a cast as possible for the single. This is expected to include artists from Simon's Syco record label - such as Susan Boyle, Leona Lewis and Alexandra Burke - as well as the company's parent label, Sony, and other musicians the star is close to in both Europe and the US.
