Washington, Aug 12 : Kiwi country music singer Keith Urban will be joining Aussie pop singer Olivia Newton-John for a duet on her forthcoming album, 'Olivia Newton-John and Friends: A Celebration in Song'.
The two Aussie singers will be performing the song "Sunburned Country," which they had co-written for an earlier album of Newton-John's Olivia (2). Money collected from the new project will be donated to the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre, a comprehensive centre for the treatment, care and research of all types of cancer.
The album includes pairings with musical friends such as Sir Cliff Richard, Barry Gibb, John Farrar Delta Goodrem and Richard Marx, and is very important to Newton-John, 60, a breast cancer survivor herself.
"I'm so delighted to bring you these songs with the help of a group of talented friends - some old and some new - who have donated their gifts and their time for this new collaboration," People magazine quoted Newton-John as telling The Wall Street Journal.
The album will be released on September 2.
