The X Factor Finalists To Release 'Wishing On A Star'
The final 16 will record Rose Royce's track as the 2011 charity single...
Simon Cowell has stated: "I've seen the amazing work they do for kids and their families who need help and support. I am thrilled that the X Factor charity single this year will benefit this charity."
Hopeful Frankie Cocozza agreed: "This is a brilliant thing to be doing for a brilliant charity" while Marcus Collins added: "It's a fantastic song choice, filled with hope. This song is one of my favourites of all time."
Eccentric Kitty Brucknell also expressed her excitement at being involved in the project, saying: "It's incredible to be able to give something back and hopefully help a lot of people."
The Risk's Charlie admitted the boyband were "honoured" to be taking part, while Sophie Habibis revealed she hopes their version of the tune "raises a lot of money for the charity."
The finalists will record the single in London this week and will shoot a video for the song later this month.
