Rihanna and Jay-Z will join U2's Bono and The Edge tonight at the "Hope for Haiti Now: A Global Benefit for Earthquake Relief" telethon to debut the new single "Stranded (Haiti Mon Amour)," which the U2 duo wrote earlier in the week. The song will be released at various Internet retailers tomorrow morning, along with all 18 performances from tonight's telethon. As we learned from "Oprah" earlier this week, Rihanna is also planning on singing Bob Marley's "Redemption Song." Alicia Keys is expected to open the show, which starts at 8 p.m. and airs on every network and dozens of cable channels.
