Norah Jones, Wyclef Jean record Katrina single
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Grammy-winning artists Norah Jones
and Wyclef Jean have recorded a single, "Any Other Day," to
benefit relief efforts following Hurricane Katrina, publicists
said on Thursday.
All proceeds from the song, which was scheduled for release
on Friday exclusively as a download on MSN Music, will go to
the Red Cross and AmeriCares to aid victims of Katrina,
spokesman Matt Hanks said.
"As a child growing up in Haiti I experienced the wrath and
destructive power of hurricanes," said Jean, a member of
reunited hip-hop trio the Fugees. "My heart is filled with
tears for the victims and all those who have lost loved ones in
Hurricanes Katrina and Rita."
