Dizzee Rascal and James Corden on a track? OMG!! And yes it’s amazing too!!
The track, entitled Shout For England is thought to be a cover of Tears For Fears hit Shout mashed-up with Blackstreet’s No Diggity and if you want someone to blame for the unlikely collaboration, it was all Simon Cowell’s idea!
“Simon has been sitting on this song and the idea for 15 years waiting for the perfect chance to get it in the charts. He approached Dizzee and then tied it up with James and everything came together.”
The rapper and Gavin and Stacey star will donate all royalties from the track, which is released on 13 June, to Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital.
It is the ultimate event that every 4 years has the whole population forget whatever they are thinking and doing at the moment.
Last night the celebration kicked off for the 2010 Fifa World Cup. From the 30,000-capacity Orlando Stadium in Soweto, Johannesburg, it was a night not to be missed South African style. Freedom Fighter, Global Peace Keeper, Archbishop Desmond Tutu embraced the crowd, proudly stating, “We welcome you all. For Africa is the cradle of humanity, so we welcome you home.”
Many musicians took the stage throughout the night including Alicia Keys, Shakira, African musicians, including Amadou & Mariam and the Soweto Gospel Choir, The Black Eye Peas, John Legend alongside many others.
And of course South Africa would not be the same if Nelson Mandela’s presence had gone unnoticed.
So enough chit chat and to everyone involved and supporting the Fifa World Cup 2010, I say Let’s bring this one home!!
