Boone, Bono team for Graham tribute
LOS ANGELES (Billboard) - What do Pat Boone and Bono have
in common? It turns out they are both fans of the Rev. Billy
They are joined by such acts as Michael McDonald, LeAnn
Rimes, Marty Stuart, DC Talk and others on "Thank You Billy
Graham," a track organized by Boone that celebrates the
evangelist's 87th birthday.
Net proceeds from the song and video, out November 7,

and Global Poverty Relief.

appears on Boone's new album, "Glory Train," which was released
on his Gold Label, distributed by Sony.
