On Monday, they will be talking to Riz about how they put together a song for Pakistan's flood relief called Open Your Eyes.

It focuses attention on the millions of victims who are still suffering more than three months after flood waters ravaged a fifth of the nation.

Most are living in crowded relief camps battling hunger, disease and death every day.

Open Your Eyes urges the world to show its compassion for survivors who have lost everything.

You can join the conversation with your questions and comments. Watch the show live on Monday, November 15, at 1630GMT. Repeats air at 2030GMT, and the next day at 0130GMT.
