Stars give public a voice for Kosovo

Alice Cooper, Wyclef Jean, Daniel Baldwin, Duncan Sheik, Sam Moore and Keanu Reeves' Dogstar band are among early volunteers slated to record Message to the World, a benefit song for Kosovo refugees co-written by former teen idol David Cassidy. But this is no elite all-star charity project. The public is invited to lend voices to the chorus by visiting the mobile studio in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest bus, a separate educational program joining the Message effort. (Stopping in cities between the East Coast and Las Vegas, the bus stops at New York's Central Park May 14.)
