|VELVET REVOLVER will take part in an all-star live performance of THE BEATLES song "Across the Universe" during the 47th annual Grammy Awards celebration, according to Billboard.com. The song, which will also feature U2 lead singer Bono, Stevie Wonder, Norah Jones, Alicia Keys, Tim McGraw and Brian Wilson, will be immediately released to raise funds for tsunami relief efforts.
The track will be made available for download at Apple's iTunes Music Store for 99 cents, with all proceeds to aid victims of the Dec. 26 earthquake and tsunami in the Indian Ocean. Video of the performance will be available on demand at CBS.com soon after the network's Feb. 13 broadcast of the awards.
Queen Latifah will host the affair, for which HOOBASTANK, Alison Krauss, Tyra Banks and AEROSMITH's Steven Tyler have been newly confirmed as presenters.
