Madonna, Gwyneth Paltrow featured on 'Every Mother Counts' album
Jennifer Lopez, Sheryl Crow, Dixie Chicks contribute to Starbucks charity compilation
Last year, model Christy Turlington Burns released her directorial debut, "No Woman, No Cry," a documentary on maternal health and complications around the world; this year, a companion CD will drop in support of her organization behind the film, with heavy hitters like Gwyneth Paltrow, Madonna and Jennifer Lopez on board.
That organization, Every Mother Counts, will release an all-female (and all-mother) compilation CD of the same name via Starbucks starting on April 12.
Other artists contributing music includes Dixie Chicks, Sinead O'Connor, Rosanne Cash, Martha Wainwright and more. The full tracklist is below. Wainwright covers the famed Bob Marley track, the film's namesake; she composed music for the film. Patti Scialfa's contribution is previously unreleased. Paltrow's track is a cover of Kate Bush's "This Woman's Work."
"No Woman, No Cry," the film, has its television debut on May 7, near Mother's Day, on Oprah's cable network OWN.
Starbucks is donating $8 from every CD sale to non-profit CARE.
