  • Robbie Williams will join his ex-bandmates in Take That for a charity single to raise funds for earthquake-stricken Haiti

    Robbie Williams will join the rest of Take That on a charity single to raise funds for earthquake-stricken Haiti.

    The song, a cover of Everybody Hurts by REM, will be the first time since 1995 that the ex-bandmates will have appeared on the same recording. Robbie said he was ‘honoured’ to have been asked to get involved. While star turns from pint-sized popstrel Kylie Minogue, Mariah Carey and Cheryl Cole have already been confirmed, it has been reported that Sir Elton John, Leona Lewis and Susan Boyle will also take part.

    The star-studded line-up, organised by Simon Cowell and The Sun newspaper, hopes to raise millions to split between two charities: the Disasters Emergency Committee and Helping Haiti. Cowell told the Mail: ‘We have a short time to do this and the people in Haiti need as much help as we can give them, as soon as possible.

    ‘I’d like to make this record with as many different types of singers as we can and I hope everyone in the industry comes together to get involved.’
