Mary J Blige, Jc Chasez, the Backstreet Boys and Chingy are among a host of stars who are teaming up to appear on a politically-charged new version of '60s R+B classic WAKE UP EVERYBODY.

Proceeds from the track, which will also feature Wyclef Jean, Ashanti, Monica, Russell Simmons, Jamie Foxx and British actress Minnie Driver, will benefit AMERICA COMING TOGETHER, which is creating a voter contact program.

Producer KENNETH 'BABYFACE' EDMONDS, who is holding sessions in New York and Los Angeles this week (ends16JUL04), says, "We're trying to push people to vote. It's not a partisan thing. I'm just saying, 'Get involved in the process.'"

The song is scheduled to be released in August (04).
