Miley Cyrus teams up with Rihanna, Carrie Underwood, and many other female singers from different genres to support 'Stand Up for Cancer'.
Teen idol Miley Cyrus is scheduled to team up with world's most established female singers from different musical genres for a charity anthem. The joint force will include "Umbrella" hit maker Rihanna and country singer Carrie Underwood. Also set to perform on the single are Ashanti, Natasha Bedingfield, Mary J. Blige, Ciara, Keyshia Cole, Sheryl Crow, Stacy Ferguson aka Fergie, Leona Lewis, LeAnn Rimes, Mariah Carey, and Beyonce Knowles.
The project will be started with a production of a tune called "Just Stand Up" to support "Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C)", a new program of raising philanthropic dollars for accelerating ground-breaking cancer research. The song, which will be produced by duo of Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds and Antonio "L.A." Reid, tells about the effort of singers and composers banding together behind SU2C's mission to raise public awareness of ending cancer's reign as a leading cause of human death. According to a press release, the song is first initiated by Antonio after a serious meeting with the women in charge of the Stand Up campaign.
The song will be available for purchase exclusively on iTunes on September 2 and will get its TV premiere on September 5 during a live "Just Stand Up" prime-time show. Their performance will be aired simultaneously and in a commercial-free program on CBS, ABC and NBC. Furthermore, among the stars who are confirmed to either appear or answer phones on the TV broadcast are Jennifer Aniston, David Cook, Scarlett Johansson, and many more.
