U2, Mariah + Garth Join Telethon Line-Up

U2, MARIAH CAREY, MARY J BLIGE and retired country star GARTH BROOKS have joined the line-up for tonight's (09SEP05) Hurricane Katrina telethon.

The stars join the likes of SHERYL CROW, ALICIA KEYS, and PAUL SIMON, who had already signed up for the Shelter From The Storm: A Concert For The Gulf Coast, which will air live on America's six major TV networks simultaneously and cable channels across the world.

The telecast will also feature rapper KANYE WEST, who shocked America with comments he made during a similar telethon a week ago (02SEP05). He has been told to keep his political thoughts to himself tonight.

Telethon producer JOEL GALLEN says, "I'm confident that it's not going to be an issue."
