  Blue's Lee goes solo for charity album
Updated 31 March 2003, 19.07

An album specially recorded to raise cash for children in war-torn Iraq will feature the first solo effort by Lee Ryan from Blue.

Avril Lavigne and Ronan Keating are among the other stars who have donated tracks to the album for the War Child charity.

The album, called Hope, was put together in just 25 days.

Lee, who has just notched up his 6th top five single with Blue, has recorded his own song, called Stand Up As People.

Avril donated a track for the album

Hope should appeal to people of all ages.

Eighties stars New Order and George Michael and former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney also feature on the album.

George recently said that many of today's pop stars didn't know enough about politics to make an anti-war record, but it seems he's keen to support this one.

The first War Child album, Help, was released in 1995.

It raised money for children in another war-torn country - the former Yugoslavia.

Hope is released on April 21.
