Faryl Smith, Paul Potts and Aled Jones are joining forces to release a single to raise money for those affected by the Haiti earthquake.

More than 23 acts - including Popstar To Operastar winner Darius Campbell, All Angels, Rhydian and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra - will head into the studio on February 27 to record David Foster's The Prayer, originally performed by Andrea Bocelli and Celine Dion.

Britain's Got Talent winner Paul said: "It was shocking to see the devastation that the earthquake brought to Haiti - it was inspiring to see among the pain and suffering hope against all odds."

He continued: "I feel privileged to be asked to be part of bringing that hope to the people of Haiti through the classical single for Haiti."

Faryl added: "It's a real honour to be a part of something that is being done for the first time, and I hope that all music lovers get involved and help raise money for the campaign. I really hope that we can make a difference together to help the horrible situation that Haiti is in at the moment."

All proceeds from the single, which will be available to download from March 14, will go to the Disasters Emergency Committee, on behalf of the people of Haiti.
