Blige, Rihanna, Beyonce, Keyshia Cole, and many others. The single will officially hit radio and be available for download on iTunes September 2nd, however a leak of the single has made it’s way to the internet and can be heard here. All the ladies who participated in the making of this single will also come together September 5th to perform the song live during the “Stand Up To Cancer” TV special, set to air simultaneously on ABC, CBS and NBC.

The Lyrics:

Beyonce: The heart is stronger than you think
It’s like it can go through anything
And even when you think it can’t it finds a way to still push on, though

Carrie: Sometimes you want to run away
Ain’t got the patience for the pain
And if you don’t believe it look into
your heart the beat goes on

Rihanna: I’m tellin’ you that
Things get better
Through whatever
If you fall, dust it off, don’t let up

Sheryl: Don’t you know you can go be your own miracle

Beyonce: You need to know

CHORUS
Sheryl: If the mind keeps thinking you’ve had enough
But the heart keeps telling you don’t give up

Sheryl/Beyonce: Who are we to be
questioning, wondering what is what
Don’t give up
THROUGH IT ALL, JUST STAND UP!

Fergie: It’s like we all have better days
Problems getting all up in your face

Leona: Just because you go through it

Fergie: Don’t mean it got to take control, no

Leona: You ain’t gotta find no hiding place

Keyshia: Because the heart can beat the hate

Leona: Don’t wanna let your mind keep playin’ you

Keyshia: And sayin’ you can’t go on

Rihanna: I’m tellin’ you that

Miley: Things get better
Through whatever

Rihanna: If you fall

Miley: Dust if off, don’t let up

LeAnn: Don’t you know you

Natasha: Can go

LeAnn: Be your own

Natasha: Miracle

Carrie: You need to know

Ensemble: CHORUS

Mary: You don’t gotta be a prisoner in your mind

Ciara: If you fall, dust it off

Mary: You can live your life

Rihanna/Carrie: Yeah

Mary: Let your heart be your guide

Rihanna/Carrie: Yeah yeah yeah

Mariah: And you will know that you’re good if you trust in the good

Ashanti: Everything will be alright, yeah
Light up the dark, if you follow your heart

Mary: And it will get better

Mariah: Through whatever

CHORUS

Fergie: You got it in you, find it within
You got in now, find it within now
You got in you, find it within
You got in now, find it within now
You got in you, find it within
Find it within you, find it within

Everyone: THROUGH IT ALL, JUST STAND UP!

  1. I don’t hear Mariah Carey.

    Here are the voices that I do hear.

    Beyonce
    Christina Aguilera
    Rihanna
    Mary J. Blige
    Fergie

    and I think Natasha Bendingfield.

    Nice song though.

  2. I agree Lonnie. It’s a nice song and traditional of most songs recorded for charity. I hear the same names you listed except for Natasha. I love one of her songs I keep hearing on Disney radio but I don’t know her voice well enough to make it out amongst a group of singers. Oddly enough I swear I hear Gladys Knight doing background vocals 😆

  3. alrighty. songs is aight…..i mean it’s for charity so yay for the cause!

    but i don’t hear these people:
    ciara
    ashanti…(maybe in the middle but i can’t tell)
    keyshia cole….(maybe she did her vocals right before mary cuz i can’t tell)
    leona lewis
    miley cirus
    natasha bedingfield
    or sheryl crow.

    i definately heard everyone else.
    oh well….i’d have to see them perform this in order to figure out who’s singing what and when.

    peace tho.

  4. It sounds really good! I love hearing so many different voices and styles together, and you can tell each singer when they come in. Christina isn’t in there unfortunately, I know that’s Mariah back there though! I think it’ll be great to see all the women perform it together, if they can all avoid trying to outsing each other onstage.

  5. Christina Aguilera is singing the second verse right after Beyonce and before Rihanna.

  6. I love this song. Have played it since I heard it.

    I’m like the rest of you though, I don’t hear half the people listed as participants. I heard all the people Lonnie heard including Natasha. I love her voice and have her album. I do hear Mariah though. She is doing that high pitch screeching thing she does at the end of the song.

  7. This is like playing Find Waldo 😆

    I too hear everyone Lonnie mentioned and it seems we have a lot of Natasha fans here, myself included, because I too was also able to pick her voice out of the crowd.

  8. I absolutely love this song. When I heard about the charity song, it reminded me of the event held in the 1980’s put together by Sir Bob Geldof for the African relief. The song was called, WE ARE THE WORLD and boasted such icons as Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, etc. It also reminded me of a collaboration by some of the greatest acts of the 1990’s like TLC, EnVogue, Vanessa Williams, etc. who sung FREEDOM on the soundtrack of the movie Panther. I will be happy to see everyone on stage as well to know who is singing what because I have fell in love with POCKETFUL OF SUNSHINE by Natasha Bedingfield and did not recognize her voice because I am just knowing about her. When I want to keep my grandkids quiet, I put her song on and they jump to attention. Thanks for the song BrownSista.

  9. I found Ashanti. She literally has one verse. The more times you listen to the song the more people whose voice you here. I think most of us originally just heard the people who had the most verses.

  10. I can barely hear Keyisha Cole or Ciara I can Hear Beyonce, Ashanti,Ri Ri, Fergie…the rest i having a hard time finding….just have to wait for them to pefrom it!!! I cant wait!!!

  11. I swear, I swear, and I swear Christina isn’t on this song. I keep up with my Aguilera. XD That second singer after Beyonce is Carrie Underwood I believe.

  12. Hmmm….seems to be two Lola’s on here. Anywho, I done listened to this thing 3 times, and I don’t hear everyone either. I am a fan of Natasha’s music, and I don’t know which one is her.

    I can’t pick out

    Ciara
    Leeann
    Carrie
    Keyshia
    I’m thinking that Melissa Etheridge is the Gladys Knight vocals Dana is hearing 😆
    I think Miley is just singing on the chorus
    Christina Aguilera’s name isn’t listed on the cd cover so is she even on the track?

  13. Oh my gosh ?Lola? you are right about Christina’s name not being metioned. Who the heck is that singing right after Beyonce then? That sounds just like Christina Aguilera to me. I am so confused now. It’s crazy. I really have to see them perform this song now cause I have no idea who that is singing behind Beyonce on this track.

  14. Mariah and Mary the best!! Love them both so I am happy to hear their voices together! I don’t like Miley… I mean…, who is she??? There are other young artists who could be in this song. No Christina – well, it is sad..

    I think that you cannot hear everyone here – this song only lasts couple minutes so you have to choose who will sing and who will make only the background;/ Still, because of the cause behind this song I think it is also an honor to be included in the track even though you are not so much heard!!

  15. I updated this post with the lyrics I found posted online. This totally ruins all the fun of this thread, but at least now we know who is singing what. 😆

    FYI: I got tricked as well because I could have sworn that was Christina singing the second verse as well. I even went back and listened to the track several times and it still sounds like Christina to me.

  16. I like the song, it sounds good.

    Its a shame that Mary, Ciara, Keyshia and Leona didn’t get more to sing. But all round it is a good song.

    Will support the cause and get it when it comes out…

  17. It’s nice to see that all of these superstars are working together for an important cause. It’s a nice song, and it’ll be a hit because it benefits a great cause.

    Seeing the lyrics took all the fun out of the guessing game because now I can easily hear each artist. Before the words were posted, I had some question marks on certain parts of the song.

  18. christina can sing her butt off so can mariah the rest is no no for me

  19. carrie underwood is singing the second verse fools go look at the lyrics!!!

  20. christina is not on the track. i like the song its for a good cause . They have beyonce, mariah, mary j., keyshia cole, leona lewis, miley cyrus, sheryl crow, natasha bedingfield, rhianna, ciara, and fergie…and i think of some others

  21. There is no need to get nasty Meechy05. Maybe you should go back and read as well because then you will know that I updated this post a few hours after I originally wrote it- and most ppl had made their comment. I added the lyrics after we all sat here debating who was who.

    Get it togetha and leave the childish comments to the children.

  22. Ok…I was right about the parts I guessed! I just didn’t recognize Keyshia and Carrie or Natasha 2 words! The lyrics don’t show Melissa Etheridge’s Gladys Knight adlibs though

  23. This is for charity. Kudos for the women who made this record. I’ll give the song a listen soon. 🙂

  24. Look what I found:

  25. Do you people read before you post? The lyrics are already posted in the article? Duh!

  26. Good job! That is a nice song. I thought that I was hearing Melissa Etheridge, but she’s not listed. I hope they do a video also.

  27. Oh, I just noticed that her name is on the picture, but not the lyrics.

  28. I don’t like it. Please don’t label me a hater but I could not tell the singers apart. In we are the world each singer is distinguishable because each brought the flare of their genre to the songs interpretation. I guess you would have to be old enough to remember the impact We Are the World had on, well, the world to get the comparison.

    The song is too pop[ish].

    Great cause, though.

  29. @Souleymane what do u mean Christina and mariah are the best on that track and the rest are no, no the rest are actually what we hear and the 2 people u are prasing are hardly recognised matter of fact Christina is not in the track, and Mariah is jst heard a 3 and a half second of solo on the track and u gon’ give her credit bigger than her OMG OMG People WATS WRONG with some mad Mariah fans Leona, Rihanna, Beyonce, Miley, Fergie and the legendary Mary J are WAT MADE THE DAMN SONG !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  30. I JUT HEARD THE SONG ON THE RADIO HERE THIS MORNING IN OKLAHOMA. HONESTLY I COULD ONLY DISTINGUISH MAYBE 4 OF THE VOICES ON THE ENTIRE TRACK. I COULD NOT HEAR MARY, ASHANTI, KEYSHIA, OR A FEW OTHERS. GOOD SONG THOUGH, FOR A GOOD CAUSE
