Rappers David Banner, Slick Rick and RAS KASS are among a host of celebrities contributing their words of inspiration to an upcoming book.

Publishers SIMON AND SCHUSTER and author Marlo Thomas, creators of the inspirational book THE RIGHT WORDS AT THE RIGHT TIME, are seeking submissions for the follow-up to the original NEW YORK TIMES bestseller, which is a collection of short stories.

The first book featured empowering words of wisdom from Venus Williams, Muhammad Ali, Steven Spielberg, SENATOR HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON, Jay Leno and others, who share stories of advice that helped change their lives.

Proceeds from the sales of the book will go to America's ST JUDE CHILDREN'S RESEARCH HOSPITAL, which was founded by Thomas' father DANNY in 1962.
