MoTab Recording to Support September 11th Victims

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- A Mormon Tabernacle Choir recording is one of 15 songs by various artists included on a new album benefiting the Twin Towers Fund. The Choir's recording of "The Star Spangled Banner" is the 14th track on the new album "God Bless America" from Columbia Records, which will be in stores October 16th. The label says a 'substantial portion' of the proceeds from album sales will go to the Twin Towers Fund, supporting the families of the police, firemen and other government personnel who lost their lives in the World Trade Center.

The album features a total of 15 tracks by popular artists, including a new studio version of "God Bless America" by Canadian singer Celine Dion, who sang a live version of the song at the recent "America: A Tribute to Heroes" telethon. The album also includes a previously unreleased live acoustic version of John Cougar Mellencamp's "Peaceful World."

According to an on-line list of Mormon Tabernacle Choir recordings, the choir last recorded "The Star Spangled Banner" for their 1965 album "God Bless America," also released by Columbia. That recording is used on the new album.
