Boy bands One Direction and JLS have joined the 16 finalists from this year’s X Factor series, to release a charity single in aid of children’s hospices in the UK.

The artists released their cover of the Rose Royce classic ‘Wishing On A Star’ via download on November 27th and via physical single on November 28th, on Syco Music.

Syco will donate 100% of its profits from the sale of each CD single and download to the charity Together for Short Lives, (previously known as ACT & Children’s Hospices UK).

Along with 50 other organisations supporting life-limited children and their families in the UK, Helen & Douglas House will receive a share of proceeds from the single. This is expected to be at least £1 for each CD and 20p for each download.

The single costs £3.99 and is available to pre-order at HMV and Amazon and via download http://xfactor.togetherforshortlives.org.uk on 28 November on Syco music and in all good high street stores, including Sainsbury's Tesco, M&S, Asda and many more. 

Simon Cowell has worked closely with Together For Short Lives for many years and comments: "Having worked close hand with this charity and seeing 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.’"

JLS said; "It's an absolute pleasure to have been invited by Simon to feature on the new X Factor charity single. Working with all the finalists and of course One Direction will be amazing. It's all for a great cause.”

One Direction said; "We're really excited to be singing on the X Factor charity single for a second year in a row. 'Together for Short Lives' is an amazing and important charity and we're honoured to be asked by Simon to help raise lots of money for them."
