Destiny's Child, Macy Gray, and Gloria Estefan are among the artists who have contributed tracks to "Keeping the Dream Alive - RACE to Erase MS." Due June 5 through Epic, the album will benefit the Nancy Davis Foundation for Multiple Sclerosis' Center Without Walls in conjunction with its annual RACE to Erase MS fundraising event.

New mixes of Gray's "I Try," Destiny's Child's "Jumpin' Jumpin'," and Mandy Moore's "Candy" appear on the set, along with R. Kelly's "Home Alone" featuring Keith Murray, "Someone to Watch Over Me" by Donna Summer, "The Only One for Me" by Brian McKnight, and Estefan's "No Me Dejes de Querer."

The set also includes an all-star celebrity version of "Lean on Me." The David Foster-produced track was recorded by 98 Degrees, Wyclef Jean, Meredith Brooks, Montel Williams, Sophie B. Hawkins, Donny Osmond, Jim Belushi, and others.

VH1 and fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger will support the release with a May 18 fundraising concert at Los Angeles' Century Plaza Hotel & Spa. Dubbed "Rock 'N Soul to Erase MS," the show will feature Donna Summer, Stevie Wonder, and Brian McKnight. It will be taped for a June 23 broadcast on VH1.

Approximately 2.8 million Americans live with multiple sclerosis. The annual Race to Erase MS event has raised more than $14 million for MS research since 1993. For more information, visit the organization's official Web site.
