Madonna to record a Michael Jackson’s song? for charity/tribute album

Madonna, Beyonce, Mariah Carey and Robbie Williams are among the host of big names reportedly planning to record a charity disc of Michael Jackson’s greatest hits.

Other world-famous acts taking part include Whitney Houston, Usher and Brit schoolboy sensation Shaheen Jafargholi, with legends Stevie Wonder, 59, Diana Ross, 65, and Lionel Richie, 60, also expected to lay down tracks.

The idea came about after a succession of stars sang cover versions of the singer’s hits at his memorial service. Producers are asking the stars to perform their favourite Jacko songs.

Mariah, 39, will sing I’ll Be There and Britain’s Got Talent star Shaheen, 12, who wowed fans at the Los Angeles memorial with his version of Who’s Loving You, will be asked to record that track and Jacko’s 1970s smash Ben. Madonna, 50, could be tempted by Beat It or Billie Jean, while other songs expected to be covered include Rock With You, She’s Out Of My Life and Bad. And Robbie, 35, is being lined up to sing Man In The Mirror amid reports his former Take That bandmates could cover ABC, Working Day And Night or Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough.

A live tribute concert is also being planned at O2 Arena, involving the singer’s family and other guests, on what would have been his 51st birthday on August 29.


Celebration, the album, will be released on CD but also as a 2-CD set, both of them being available for pre-order from
