“Just Stand Up” – Song Sneak Peek – Video

A preview of the theme song for the big cancer telethon David Cook and the rest of the American Idol S7 Top 10 will be involved with is available for preview on the internets!

A slew of female superstars took part in the recording, including, Carrie Underwood, Leona Lewis, Mariah Carey, Beyonce, Mary J. Blige, Rihanna, Fergie, Sheryl Crow, Melissa Etheridge, Natasha Bedingfield, Miley Cyrus, Keyshia Cole, Leann Rimes, Ashanti and Ciara.

The tune, “Just Stand Up” will be released to iTunes on September 2 with proceeds going to cancer research. The telethon will air in a simulcast on many networks September 5 at 8 pm.

Country, pop, rock and R&B artists came together to make the record, but with Babyface Edmonds producing, it’s got a decidedly R&B flair. Decidedly 90’s R&B. Old school. Ish. Rousing chorus, key change, and inspirational lyrics mandatory for the big group charity song? Check.

But, never mind all that. It’s all for a good cause. I’ll no doubt be downloading my very own copy come September 2.

I think I picked out Carrie Underwood’s heavily processed vocal. The second line of the first verse? Correct me if I’m wrong…

Check it out After the JUMP…
