Sources say, Robbie Williams and Kylie Minogue will sing on Simon Cowell's charity single for the victims of the Haiti earthquake. It is also said that Cheryl Cole and Take That would also sing on the track, a cover of REM's Everybody Hurts.

Meanwhile, Radiohead have raised more than $500,000 (£308,192) for the appeal with a special gig in Los Angeles.

And George Clooney's global telethon has so far raised $61m (£37.6m).

It is believed the 7.0 magnitude quake on the 12 of January killed as many as 200,000 people. An estimated 1.5 million people have been left homeless.

Recording for Cowell's single has already started, with Leona Lewis, JLS, James Blunt and Joe McElderry laying down their vocals.

Half of the single's proceeds will go to the Sun's Helping Haiti fund and the rest will be donated to the Disasters Emergency Committee.

Radiohead performed for more than two hours on Sunday at the Henry Fonda Theatre.

Stars such as Justin Timberlake, Jessica Biel, Charlize Theron, Anna Paquin and Daniel Craig were in the crowd.
Fans had bid for tickets in an online auction, with proceeds going to Oxfam International.

Some of the world's most famous celebrities, including Madonna, Jay Z, Rihanna and Mary J Blige participated in Clooney's Hope for Haiti Now telethon, which took place on Friday.

It was shown on all major US TV channels, YouTube, MySpace and on MTV in the UK.
