Usher & Whitney 'Will Be There' for Jacko

8/13/2009 2:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

No need to call a doctor -- Michael Jackson is about to be remade again ... but this time by John Mayer*, Lionel Richie and Whitney Houston.



Larry King's
wife Shawn tells us Usher, Dionne Warwick, Wyclef and Jermaine Jackson are joining Mayer, Richie and Houston in recording a remake of Jacko's "Will You Be There." Shawn, who is spearheading the tribute and sings on it as well, tells us she's not sure if Jennifer Hudson -- who sang the song at Michael's over-the-top memorial last month -- will be involved with the project, as she just gave birth.

The proceeds from the song will be split 50/50 between The Larry King Cardiac Foundation and LaToya Jackson an unspecified charity close to MJ.

*UPDATE:
Mayer's rep denies he's a part of the project, saying, "John is currently in the studio working on his upcoming album, this report is false."

People finally REMEMBERED WHAT MJ WAS ALL ABOUT: CHARITY AND MAKING THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE. May your humanitarian legacy inspire all of us today and help us teach your UNCONDITIONAL LOVE to our little ones.

Well like it or not, this topic is about Michael, and not Obama. If you wanna talk about Obama, you need to go to the politician Sites.

WHY DOES TMZ CONTINUE TO REFER TO MICHAEL AS "JACKO"
This is getting so annoying and disrespectful if you ask me
M.J did not go by that name, thats the name these low life media papers gave him for rumors that were never proved to be true
So please have some respect and refer to the man by his NAME!
