simoncowell 320 Simon Cowell signs Leona Lewis, Rod Stewart and Michael Buble for Haiti singleSimon Cowell has started lining up stars for his Haiti relief single.

The BBC is reporting that Leona Lewis, Rod Stewart and Michael Buble are on board, while Robbie Williams, Coldplay, Take That and Sir Paul McCartney have also been approached.

Apparently the single will be a cover of REM’s 1993 single “Everybody Hurts” and according to Simon Cowell’s initial news, will be released within the next fortnight.

We think it could shape up to be a great single. We would wager the sales will do well even if the song isn’t that great because all the proceeds are going to benefit the victims of the Haiti earthquake.

Friday, Jan. 22 is the nationwide telethon “Hope for Haiti Now,” airing at 8 p.m. ET/PT on almost every channel.
