OSBOURNE CHARITY SINGLE FINALLY APPEARS

It's been a long time coming, but the Sharon Osbourne organised cover of Tears In Heaven has finally arrived - curiously, its original mission of helping victims of the Boxing Day tsunami has been expanded to include Hurricane Katrina victims too; we wonder if Sharon got all the participants' agreements to that change of focus.

Amongst those doing a lot of good work are Ozzy Osbourne, Kelly Osbourne, Rod Stewart, Phil Collins, Katie Melua... we're sure you can draw up the list for yourself. Sharon has a statement to make:

"The magnitude of these natural disasters surpasses anything we've seen in our lifetime.

"With this single and other relief efforts, our intent is to keep these tragedies at the forefront of everyone's minds. We must not forget and do all we can to help these people rebuild their lives.

"Music fans who purchase this single will aid the relief efforts and own an historic recording for which these talented artists graciously donated their time."


Let's just have another look at that last paragraph again, shall we?

"Music fans who purchase this single will aid the relief efforts and own an historic recording for which these talented artists graciously donated their time."

How generous of those talented artists to generously donate their talented time to such a generous historic recording.

For some reason, if you wanted the download, it's only available through 7Digital website rather than the places you might usually buy your music. So, we must do all we can to help these people, up to, but not including, signing a deal with iTunes or Napster, then.
