'American Idol' Finalists Record Benefit Single
New York, 4/7/2003. The finalists in the second season of the U.S. talent show "American Idol" have now come out with their own benefit single. Its publisher, RCA Records, reports that 50 cents of every single sold will go to the American Red Cross. The CD contains the two American classics "God Bless the U.S.A" and "What the World Needs Now Is Love," which the finalists first presented in the "American Idol" show on Mar 26. The hit "What the World Needs Now Is Love" was written in 1967 by the famous songwriter/producer Burt Bacharach, who also produced the song now, 36 years later, with the "Idol" finalists. "It had meaning when we wrote it, but it has so much more meaning now at this time," declared Bacharach.
I guess if Saddam's not dead and we want to force him out of a building the way we did Noriega, we can just blast this CD at him until he surrenders.
