Helping Haiti – Everybody Hurts: Official Promotional Video

Vodpod videos no longer available.

This is the official promotional video for the song ‘Everybody Hurts.’ The song features Leona Lewis, Rod Stewart,  Miley Cyrus, Mariah Carey,Jon Bon Jovi,Susan Boyle and a host of others. The song is the same as the original version that was recorded by R.E.M. in 1993. This version works because there are a variety different voices singing in the same key and no one is trying outshine the other. The song’s structure wasn’t tampered with and the video focuses more on the footage of Haiti rather than the celebrities themselves.

Video for ‘Everybody Hurts’ charity single for Haiti

As Lionel Richie and Quincy Jones remake “We Are the World”, American Idol judge Simon Cowell assembled his own entourage of artists for the remake of REM’s classic song, “Everybody Hurts.”  Susan Boyle, Mariah Carey, Robbie Williams, Leona Lewis, Rod Stewart, Miley Cyrus, Cheryl Cole, and Kylie Minogue are just some of the artists featured on this track.  The proceeds from “Everybody Hurts”, will benefit Haiti relief. The song is currently available for pre-order on Amazon.

Sony Music Store online will have the song available for purchase on Sunday, February 7.
