Madonna Is Empress For A Day On Benefit Album, Book

Madonna has joined talk show host Rosie O'Donnell, "Sabrina: Teenage Witch" star Melissa Joan Hart, and several other celebrity names in performing an oral interpretation of the classic children's fable, "The Emperor's New Clothes," for a new benefit CD and book.

Proceeds raised from the "Emperor's Clothes" box set will benefit the Starbright Foundation, the organization chaired by director Steven Spielberg and retired General Norman Schwarzkopf that seeks to create projects that help seriously ill children overcome the challenges that accompany prolonged sickness.

Madonna will read the part of the Empress, of course, for the "Emperor's Clothes" benefit set, which arrives in stores on October 25.
