Jerkins Plans Musical Katrina Relief
Top producer RODNEY JERKINS will showcase the talent on his upcoming Hurricane Katrina benefit album by releasing an all-star version of SISTER SLEDGE hit WE ARE FAMILY in June (06). The Grammy-winning music mogul gathered friends like PATTI LABELLE, GEORGE CLINTON and CHRISTINA MILIAN together to record tracks for the as-yet-untitled charity album, and he's planning a sneak preview with a WE ARE THE WORLD-type single and video. The original members of Sister Sledge have reunited for the first time in 20 years for the project, and join LaBelle, Milian, CIARA and CHRIS BROWN, among others on the single. All proceeds from the single and album will benefit the victims of the 2005 summer storms, which devastated the Gulf Coast region of America.
