Plan B to team up with Sir Elton John for charity single
Date Posted: 07/02/11
British rapper Plan B has announced that he is going to record a charity single with Sir Elton John to raise funds for those affected by floods in Pakistan.
A cover of the songwriter's Hard Times is the chosen track, with Paloma Faith also joining the duo.
The Stay Too Long performer, real name Ben Drew, wants to release the single as he believes that Britons have not done enough to help people caught up in the crisis.
"The reason why I first thought of doing the single is because of this guy Riz Ahmed in my film - he's Pakistani and he put on an event after the floods first happened. Kids were dying in floods, but it wasn't promoted heavily over here as it was going on," he said.
Plan B will be starting a UK tour next month, kicking things off with a performance in front of those booking hotels near The O2 arena, London, on Thursday March 10th.
