Watch Mark Knopfler, Rosanne Cash, Darius Rucker, Peter Frampton and More Cover ‘Stand By Me’
Sixty years after Ben E. King's immortal “Stand By Me” was released, a huge group of artists have come together including Mark Knopfler, Rosanne Cash, Darius Rucker, Richard Thompson, Peter Frampton, Keb Mo, Jimmie Allen and Rick Wakeman for a remotely recorded homage to the immortal ballad.
The recording will be released as a charity single later this month to raise funds for Help Musicians, which provides financial support to musicians. The charity single was organized by BBC's Bob Harris.
"We are keen to raise funds to help the diverse and engaged grassroots music community we love so much," said Harris.
Other artists performing on the recording include Paul Rodgers, Duane Eddy, John Oates, Sam Outlaw, Marc Cohn, and many more.
The King classic, written by King, Lieber and Stoller, was a top five hit and was covered by everyone from Otis Redding and Muhammad Ali to Miley Cyrus and Meat Loaf.
