London - Samuel L Jackson hosted a star-studded karaoke party in London on Thursday night.

The 65-year-old actor was joined by famous faces including Toni Collette, Dominic Cooper, Nicole Scherzinger and Nick Grimshaw at the renowned Abbey Road Studios to record a new charity single, Say Something, to raise awareness and funds for One For The Boys' Man Movement, which aims to educate men on male cancer.

The Captain America: The Winter Soldier star, who is the organisation's chairman, said: "What better way is there to unite men than through music? Last night saw us mark the start of the recording of our charity single, Say Something which we hope will make men realise that they can say something when it comes to cancer. Men don't tend to talk about their health issues, thinking it reveals vulnerability."

He added: "One For The Boys aims to shine a blue light into the world of campaigning, cutting through the noise to educate men, encouraging early detection and treatment. We believe this single featuring the world's leading artists, can save lives."

Samuel also performed a rendition of Show Me Love at the event and was dubbed the "Karoke King" by model Daisy Lowe, who posted a video of him singing on her Instagram profile.



One For The Boys' official Twitter page also shared a post of the nights celebrations


Penned by group A Great Big World, Say Something, which will also feature Paul McCartney, is set to go head-to-head with the next X Factor winner for the Christmas number one and all the proceeds will go to the charity.

Launched by Sofia Davis in 2013, One For The Boys' celebrity ambassadors include Michael Douglas, Simon Pegg, Colin Firth and John Bishop.
