Hurricane charity single released
Sharon Stone
Stone says she has collaborated with other songwriters
A song written by Basic Instinct star Sharon Stone to raise funds for victims of Hurricane Katrina has been released in the US and online.

Come Together Now features Celine Dion, Wyclef Jean, Joss Stone and more than a dozen other artists.

Proceeds will go to relief charities Habitat for Humanity and Angel's Place.

The single features on a compilation album - which also includes tributes from Elton John, Barbra Streisand and James Brown among others.

Combat poverty

The album called Hurricane Relief: Come Together Now was released earlier this month.

It is not the first time actress Sharon Stone has turned her hand to songwriting, she said, having written with various collaborators for the past year.

She worked with songwriters Denise Rich, Mark Feist and Damon Sharpe on Come Together Now.

Habitat for Humanity aims to combat poverty and homelessness while Angels' Place provided homes for terminally ill children, which were subsequently destroyed by the hurricane.
