Mariah, Miley, Beyonce singing against cancer
Forget We Are The World, the big feelgood anthem of this generation will likely be a new song featuring 15 hot singers to benefit cancer research.
Just Stand Up, the creation of producers Antonio "L.A." Reid and Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds, hits radio and iTunes on Sept. 2, touting an all-star team of female voices. Mariah Carey, Beyonce, Mary J. Blige, Rihanna, Fergie, Sheryl Crow, Miley Cyrus, Melissa Etheridge, Ashanti, Natasha Bedingfield, Keyshia Cole, Ciara, Leona Lewis, LeAnn Rimes and Carrie Underwood are all on the track.
All 15 singers will share the stage to perform the song live on Sept. 5 during that Stand Up to Cancer television special, the AP writes. Other stars expected to turn out: Jennifer Aniston, Lance Armstrong, Katie Couric, Sally Field, Salma Hayek, Meryl Streep, Forest Whitaker, Reese Witherspoon and, as previously mentioned, Christina Applegate.
