    4 people who are not proper popstars and just voted into the industry and 1 who has had stage fright!! Great line up lol

    Maybe money would of been best from him

    5 of the biggest selling artists for last year. What more can he do?

    it's about selling cd's and making money not who is the most talented.

    but it was on the news last night that james morrison and mika had also added vocals at least so that ISNT the full line up.

    isnt it really about raising the money? most of the worlds "heavy hitters" have already done george clooneys telethon anyways and their album is already on itunes.

    Isnt Take That on there too? I seem to remember a story somewhere saying it was the first recording of Robbie and Take That together since he left the band.

    whats a "proper popstar" then? susan boyle has broken america and so has leona which is almost impossible for a british artist to do. Im no fan of cowell,or for that matter boyle or lewis but to suggest they are not "stars" is madness.

    Michael Buble's in there too as are JLS and Joe McElderry

    ................ he has obviously chosen people relevant to himself at this time, at least he is trying to be of some help!!

    Rod Stewerts also been adding vocals, if thats not big enough for the OP then I dunno

    Take That
    Mariah Carey

    Good list of people willing the help..... better than having a U2 track made lol

    This song is ace, i love it.

    When does it come out as the quake is becoming old news now and the impact is lessening which I assume will lead to less sales.

    But why should he? Good for him for getting off his bottom and doing something anyway, and there's a pretty good chance that he has donated some of his cash anyway but he's not going to advertise the fact. Don't know what the fuss is about OP, these are all very popular artists at the moment, together they will sell a lot of singles which is what's required.

    And we all know that all the money and help is going to get there, right?

    If he did put his hand in his pocket and donate say 1 million people would say why only 1 million why not 2 or 5.

    People like him are never going to win, as above at least he is doing something towards it, which can't be a bad thing no matter how small.

    I agree but why is we 'despise' people who are successful. We should be encouraged that someone is doing well and not try to take the shine of them.

    I would like us all (me includes) to be great. COMEON!!! Let's get positive:thumbsup:

    Westlife & Miley Cyrus too apparently...

    I think you've got that the wrong way round, it's to raise money and promoting the artists is a side effect.

    If these artists or simon cowell weren't to do anything, would you have a go at them for that?

    Depends which way you look at it I suppose, the other side is that he is 'manager' to most of the artisits so it is easier for him to set it up.

    At the end of the day he is still doing something, how many of the other big record companies who could promote their own artists are doing anything?

    WOW! You have a problem! Haiti will benefit from a guy using his talents and contacts to raise money. Tha'ts what he does, what talents are you using to raise money for Haiti. My wife has just raised over £500 in 1 day on a sponsored fast. She doesen't have the same talents as Simon Cowell (I think he is a tube - however is is brilliant at what he does) but she has friends and work collegues.

    ^^^ So are you saying you would rather they didn't do this?

    You seem to be very naive about what sells in the charts these days.

    I;m sure you got out of the wrong side of bed this morning LOL. Think about it, there is bound to be a lot of money raised for Haiti whatever the reason. Think positive ..... That's the point!:thumbsup:

    Maybe the other companies don't feel the need to promote their own self … Maybe the other companies don't feel the need to promote their own self importances and just give without needing free air time in return



    A very important word there, maybe on the other hand they are doing nothing.

    not exactly world known are they?



    How can you say Michael Buble is not world known.

    brb making a charity cd with old artists which wont sell.

    God some people are just lame, ok you might not think some of the acts are talented etc, but they are most current/relevant which wil help sell the most amount of records which will therefore maxamise the amount of money going to haiti

    Can't he get RATM on this?
