London, England (CNN) -- British television mogul Simon Cowell is producing a record to raise funds for the earthquake recovery effort in Haiti.
At the British National Television Awards in London Wednesday, Cowell said he had received a request from Prime Minister Gordon Brown to consider a charity record.
"We had a request from the prime minister and The Sun newspaper, 'Would we put a record together?' We haven't got a lot of time but we are going to do something and attempt to raise as much money as possible," Cowell said, according to the UK's Press Association.
It is unclear which artists will contribute to the single, however Cowell manages a stable of high-profile singers through Syco, his joint venture with Sony Music Entertainment.
They include "Britain's Got Talent" runner-up Susan Boyle and "X Factor" winner Leona Lewis.
Cowell said his fellow "X Factor" judge Cheryl Cole would also "love to" take part.
A spokeswoman from the Prime Minister's Office confirmed that Brown had phoned Cowell to ask him to make a charity record.
The devastating impact of the earthquake in Haiti has inspired a number of celebrities to issue calls for aid.
Irish rock band U2 has collaborated with American rapper Jay-Z and producer Swizz Beatz on a song to raise funds for Haiti.
U2 is expected to perform the song during "Hope for Haiti," a global telethon scheduled to air across major U.S. networks on Friday, January 22.
