Jackson Recruits Kelly For Charity Track

LATEST: MICHAEL JACKSON has recruited troubled R+B star R KELLY to perform on his charity single for America's hurricane victims.

It had initially been believed that Kelly, who is currently fighting child pornography charges, would not be able to perform on the single, which had initially been named FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART, until Jackson altered and re-recorded it.

And while the many stars Jackson had mentioned - including MARIAH CAREY, LENNY KRAVITZ and JAY-Z - have yet to publicly confirm that they're participating on the track, Kelly has signed up not only to lend his voice to the project but also to serve as executive producer, reports MTV News.

Jackson, who has kept a low profile since his June (05) acquittal on child molestation charges, had started recording the single in London, but is now finishing it up in Los Angeles.
