Stars Sing Clapton's Track For Tsunami Victims

SHARON OSBOURNE has enlisted a host of stars to cover ERIC CLAPTON's tragic song TEARS IN HEAVEN for a charity single to raise money for the victims of the Indian Ocean tsunami.

The rock matriarch has joined forces with arch-rival SIMON COWELL to produce a star-studded remake of the 1992 song Clapton wrote following the death of his four-year-old son CONOR, who was killed when he fell from a 53rd floor apartment window.

Osbourne says, "We approached Eric and his lawyers and everyone else said yes straight away - we could not think of a more appropriate song."

The song will include the vocal talents of ROD STEWART, ROBBIE WILLIAMS, SIR ELTON JOHN, AEROSMITH frontman STEVEN TYLER, GWEN STEFANI and OZZY and KELLY OSBOURNE.

Cowell is in talks for WESTLIFE, WILL YOUNG and BRIAN McFADDEN to join the track, which will be released on SONY and BMG RECORDS.

Osbourne adds, "The people taking part are spread all over the world. They will probably have to record their parts in local studios and then we can put them all together."
