MICHAEL JACKSON is coming out of seclusion to record a song he's written to benefit victims of Hurricane Katrina.

Jackson, 47, will record the single, FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART, within two weeks, and he plans to enlist other entertainers for the project, says his spokeswoman RAYMONE BAIN.

He says in a written statement, "It pains me to watch the human suffering taking place in the Gulf region of my country. My heart and prayers go out to every individual who has had to endure the pain and suffering caused by this tragedy.

"I will be reaching out to others within the music industry to join me in helping bring relief and hope to these resilient people who have lost everything."

Jackson, who left his California home for Bahrain after his acquittal on child molestation charges in June (05), will record the song on a label owned by Bahrain's crown prince and donate the proceeds to hurricane victims, says Bain.

Jackson is hoping to repeat the success he had with 1985 charity single WE ARE THE WORLD, which featured dozens of the era's top musicians and raised more than $60 million (GBP33.3 million) for Africa. He co-wrote the song with LIONEL RICHIE.
