(Newser) – Jon Bon Jovi has released a music video in support of Iran protesters in which he sings Stand by Me in Farsi with exiled Iranian singer Andy Madadian, reports Reuters. "It's not for sale," said a producer of the video, which was first released on mydamnchannel.com. "It's intended to be downloaded and shared by the Iranian people. The idea was to get it into Iran and tell them to carry on, that the world is watching and we're with you." (Read more Jon Bon Jovi stories.)
