Simon Cowell's brother has gone behind the scenes of the X Factor supremo's charity single to raise cash to help Haiti's radio stations.
Tony Cowell interviewed stars including Susan Boyle, Mika and James Morrison - as well his own brother - for a radio documentary during a recording in London.
His six-minute report is being made available for radio stations to broadcast.
People can download it or just listen in return for a donation.
Simon worked with The Sun newspaper to put the cover of REM's haunting ballad Everybody Hurts together to raise money for Haiti earthquake victims.
The song also includes vocals from Leona Lewis, Rod Stewart and Kylie Minogue.
During Tony's interview, his brother Simon told him: "I didn't think twice about this song actually.
"It immediately felt like the right song to do and we didn't consider anything else - The lyric just seemed appropriate. It's a beautiful song, so it just chose itself really."
Meanwhile, Boyle said she felt "honoured" to take part.
She said: "It's such a terrible thing to have happened I would've been moved to have done something about it anyway because that's my nature."
