Simon Cowell and Everybody Hurts

I understand Simon Cowell is currently very busy organising a super charity single in aid of Haiti earthquake victims. This single is Everybody Hurts originally done by REM.

So far, the confirmed big names include Rod Stewart, Leona Lewis, JLS and Michael Buble.

The other fellows he is talking with are Will Young, Robbie Williams, Coldplay, Take That, George Michael and Sir Paul McCartney.

This event will be a bit of a rush as the single should be out by the end of this month.

All proceeds go to the Disasters Emergency Committee and The Sun's Helping Haiti campaign.
Prime Minister Gordon Brown, who asked Simon to organise the single, will waive the VAT.
And REM do not want royalties from the track
Here below is the original version by REM. I can't help but believe that Simon Cowell is more impressed with the song than I am. But what do I know!

And this of course, is Leona Lewis.
