What Do Pat Boone And Bono
Have In Common?

From Reuters:

It turns out they are both fans of the Rev. Billy Graham.

They are joined by such acts as Michael McDonald, LeAnn Rimes, Marty Stuart, DC Talk and others on "Thank You Billy Graham," a track organized by Boone that celebrates the evangelist's 87th birthday.

Net proceeds from the song and video, out November 7, benefit Mercy Corps and Samaritan's Purse for Hurricane Katrina and Global Poverty Relief.

The song, written by Boone, David Pack and Billy Dean, appears on Boone's new album, "Glory Train," which was released on his Gold Label, distributed by Sony.
