Feb. 22 (UPI) -- Music luminaries including Adele, Dolly Parton and Pearl Jam will perform on Brandi Carlile's Cover Stories: Brandi Carlile Celebrates Ten Years of The Story – An Album to Benefit War Child and Barack Obama, a Carlile fan, wrote a foreword for the album.
Cover Stories will feature reinterpretations of the 14 songs on Carlile's 2007 hit The Story, which was produced by T Bone Burnett.
The Indigo Girls, Avett Brothers, Margo Price and Kris Kristofferson will also perform on the album which will release on May 5.
Proceeds will benefit War Child UK.
In a statement, Carlile said, "This is a David and Goliath story. Since becoming a mother, the reality of a child's beautiful life being torn apart by war felt like too big of a problem for me. So I asked my heroes and friends to help me launch a rock at the giant that is our refugee crisis and help in the only way we know how, through the power of music... It's not how hard you can throw, it's how high you're willing to aim."
