(Newser) – The BBC managed to put together one of the greatest "supergroups" of all time: 27 famous artists who came together to perform the Beach Boys classic "God Only Knows." Brian Wilson is there, of course, but other singers include Stevie Wonder, Pharrell Williams, Lorde, Kylie Minogue, Dave Grohl, Elton John, Chris Martin, Chrissie Hynde, and even One Direction. The promotional video was filmed to promote BBC Music, the Telegraph reports, and it was broadcast simultaneously on all of the BBC channels—TV and radio. The artists performed for free, and the single will be sold to raise money for a children's charity.
