Mary J Blige, Missy Elliot and Eve are teaming up to record an anti-GEORGE W BUSH song, in the build up to November's (04) US Presidential election.

R+B star Blige and rappers Missy Elliot and Eve will sing WAKE UP EVERYBODY - which was used to persuade black voters to vote for Jimmy Carter in the 1976 election.

The track will also feature on a benefit album being released by AMERICA COMING TOGETHER - a campaign pushing for a change of president.

KENNY 'BABYFACE' EDMONDS will produce the track - which was originally a hit for HAROLD MELVIN AND THE BLUE NOTES in the 1960s.

Edmonds says, "This song is the spirit of the country and all these artists have the will to change it."
