Michael Jackson has identified a way to bring his brand back from the dead, he will record a song for the victims of hurricane Katrina.
He has written a song called "From The Bottom of My Heart" and, in an attempt to emulate "Live Aid", is trying to enlist other musicians to join him in a recording project to raise funds for the relief of Katrina's victims.
Jackson's spokesman said:
"In response to the widespread devastation wrought by Hurricane Katrina, recording superstar Michael Jackson has been moved to pen a song, with the working title, 'From the Bottom of My Heart,'
Within 24 hours, Mr Jackson will be reaching out to other recording superstars asking that they join him in this project to aid victims of Hurricane Katrina
All proceeds from the sale will be donated to the victims of Hurricane Katrina."
Jackson will record the song on Two Seas Records, a label owned by Prince Abdullah Hamad Alkhalifa of Bahrain.
Jackson is quoted as saying:
"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."
