To raise money for the victims of the 2010 Haiti earthquake, Simon Cowell organised a charity single. He chose "Everybody Hurts" as the song, PM Gordon Brown agreed to waive VAT on the single and R.E.M. agreed to waive all royalties. Proceeds from the single will be split between The Sun's Helping Haiti fund and the Disasters Emergency Committee. The song is performed by (in order of appearence): Kylie Minogue, Robbie Williams.
