Carey to sing on Jackson hurricane song

Pop star Mariah Carey is to perform on Michael Jackson's charity single for the victims of Hurricane Katrina, his spokeswoman announced on Monday.

She will join "Godfather of Soul" James Brown and rappers Snoop Dogg and Jay-Z on the track, tentatively titled From the Bottom of My Heart.

Lenny Kravitz, Wyclef Jean and Missy Elliott are also involved in the song.

Jackson is "continuing to reach out to artists who would like to work on him on this project", his spokeswoman said.

"He humbly hopes [it] will make a tremendous difference to all individuals who have been affected by this tragedy," reports BBC News.

According to Reuters, “Mr. Jackson is continuing to reach out to artists who would like to work with him on this project, which he humbly hopes will make a tremendous difference to all individuals who have been affected by this tragedy, Bain said.

Jackson, who raised more than $60 million for African famine relief in the mid-1980s with a campaign built around his anthem “We Are the World,” announced last week that he had been moved by images of Katrina’s devastation to write a song for the hurricane’s victims.

Bain has said that the 47-year-old singer, who left his Neverland Valley Ranch in California for Bahrain after his June acquittal on sex abuse charges, will return to the United States to record the song, tentatively titled “From the Bottom of My Heart.”
