The song, recorded in Los Angeles on Monday, also features Celine Dion, Miley Cyrus, Snoop Dogg, Brian Wilson and Tony Bennett.

Due to be debuted on US TV on February 12, the charity single has been organised by the song's original author, Lionel Richie.

Lil' Wayne, who has friends who lost relatives in last month's earthquake, said it was “amazing” to be involved in the relief effort.

But he admitted: “I don't know how to sing."

'We Are The World' was originally released in 1985 to help raise money for famine relief in Africa.
