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.

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