Just Stand Up For Cancer
I am surprised I did not hear a lot about this event. I think it is a good cause, so many times we hear so many negative things about entertainers, and good things are on the "back" page of newspapers. I guess the old adage that drama sells is the truth.
The single was released on August 29th. Just Stand Up!" is a song featuring the vocals of an all-star group of pop/R&B/rock performers, including Mariah Carey, Beyoncé, Mary J. Blige, Rihanna, Fergie, Sheryl Crow, NICOLE SCHERZINGER, Natasha Bedingfield, Miley Cyrus, Leona Lewis, Carrie Underwood, Keyshia Cole, LeAnn Rimes, Ashanti and Ciara.
American song-writer and producer Antonio "L.A."Reid conceived the collaboration after a meeting with the founder of Stand Up to Cancer, which will benefit from the proceeds of the record. Reid co-produced the track with American singer Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds, and the single was released on August 29, 2008.
