Cher, Robbie Williams, Bryan Adams, Kylie Minogue, Mel C, Lenny Kravitz and more have all teamed up to lend their voices to this year's BBC Radio 2's Children in Need charity single.

The star-studded line-up of musicians recorded a cover of Oasis' 2002 hit song 'Stop Crying Your Heart Out' to raise vital funds to help support children and young people across the UK facing disadvantage.

The video, which was put together by BBC Radio 2, was recorded and filmed by artists in locations across the world, from Cher in Malibu to Robbie Williams in Switzerland to Jay Sean in New York and Yola in Nashville.

It is interspersed with clips of children smiling or playing.

The backing track is performed by the BBC Concert Orchestra alongside Clean Bandit’s Grace Chatto and former BBC Young Musician of the Year Sheku Kanneh-Mason on cello and Anoushka Shankar on sitar.

Speaking about the single, Cher said that she found the recording process to be "very emotional," but something that was "very important" to her.
