Michael Jackson To The Rescue!
Hold on, Katrina victims. Michael Jackson is coming to the rescue with his charity single. I love the odd mix of celebs who agreed to participate: Snoop Dogg, R. Kelly (who knows something about underage sex scandals), Ciara, Keyisha Cole, James Ingram, Jackson's brother Jermaine, Shanice, the Rev. Shirley Caesar and the O'Jays. The song is called "I Have This Dream" (to heck with having "a" dream) and will come out in a week or two. Michael's buddy Prince Abdullah told the media "It's a song of total oneness." And O'Jays singer Eddie Levert had this unintentionally hilarious comment: "Michael produced it on the phone from Bahrain. He talked to Shirley Caesar, he talked to James Ingram. He talked to everyone except me." The Prince promised more music to come. "This is a raindrop before the thunderstorm," he said. "He's getting ready to come out with a lot of bells and whistles. He's so energized. It's explosive." God help me, I'd probably by it just to hear what it sounded like.
