Blue Star To Break America With Kerry's Help

British BLUE pop star LEE RYAN is hoping to launch his career in America by performing at one of presidential hopeful JOHN KERRY's fundraisers.

The ALL RISE hitmaker will sing his solo tune STAND UP AS PEOPLE, which he penned for the forthcoming WAR CHILD album, at a Democrat bash in New York on 19 September (04).

Ryan and his Blue bandmates' original plans to conquer America ground to a halt in 2001 after Ryan - who witnessed the horrific September 11th (01) attacks in New York himself - told British newspaper THE SUN he didn't understand the world's reaction to the atrocities.

Ryan ranted, "Who gives a f**k about New York when elephants are being killed?

"Animals need saving and that's more important. This New York thing is being blown out of proportion."
