Simon Cowell says he will produce a charity single within 10 days to benefit victims of the earthquake in Haiti. No word yet on which British stars will perform, but Susan Boyle is a possibility. Prime Minister Gordon Brown asked Cowell to put together the single, which will be exempt from sales tax. The news comes as Quincy Jones plans a 25th anniversary recording of We Are the World in the US for Haiti's victims. (More Simon Cowell stories.)
