AIDS benefits from covers

Published: 2006-08-09
Some of the biggest names in music are putting together a batch of covers to help AIDS research.

Between the Covers, due out September 12, is a collection of cover songs like Lenny Kravitz's "American Woman," Madonna's version of "American Pie" and Sheryl Crow's rendition of "The First Cut Is the Deepest."

Proceeds from the disc will go to the TJ Martell Foundation, an organization started by music industry executive Tony Martell to raise money for medical research to help his son TJ. Though TJ passed away shortly after his 21st birthday, his memory lives on in this foundation committed to funding research for Cancer and AIDS.

If you want to help you can do so just by picking up this disc in September with these fine tunes:

"American Woman," Lenny Kravitz
"Everlasting Love," U2
"American Pie," Madonna
"Downtown Train," Rod Stewart
"Ol'55," Sarah McLachlan
"Smells Like Teen Spirit," Tori Amos
"Landslide," Dixie Chicks
"Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out," Eric Clapton
"Cold, Cold Heart," Norah Jones
"This Woman's Work," Maxwell
"The First Cut Is the Deepest," Sheryl Crow
"If I Was Your Woman/Walk on By," Alicia Keys
"If I Needed Someone," the Bacon Brothers
"Dancing in the Street," David Bowie and Mick Jagger
