A cast of stars including Liza Minelli and Ben Vereen brought their talents together to record the song "For You, Armenia" and make a TV special to help earthquake victims in Soviet Armenia.
Most of the profit will be given to the Armenian Relief Society for direct donation to victims of the quake that left about 25,000 people dead and 500,000 homeless."We can do what we usually do in life to raise money," Minelli said Sunday before stepping into a studio at Paramount Pictures in Los Angeles. "When I saw the disaster in Armenia I thought I was going to die."
Pia Zadora, Irene Cara, Connie Stevens, Ray Parker Jr. and members of the Doobie Brothers and Toto were among the nearly 100 performers who collaborated.
