LONDON, Feb. 8 (UPI) -- The Haiti charity song "Everybody Hurts," recorded by Rod Stewart, Leona Lewis, Cheryl Cole and Susan Boyle, has been released online.

Organized by producer Simon Cowell and featuring the vocal talents of Mika, James Blunt, James Morrison, Alexandra Burke and Robbie Williams, the cover of the R.E.M. song became available as a digital download Sunday and went on sale as a CD single in stores Monday, the BBC said.

Proceeds from the sale of the single are to go to the Disasters Emergency Committee and the Sun newspaper's Helping Haiti campaign in order to give relief to those affected by the Jan. 12 earthquake in Haiti.

The 5 1/2-minute-long music video of the song shows footage of the singers recording in a studio, woven in with scenes from devastated Haiti, the British broadcaster said.
