Two weeks before Mr. Putin’s return to the presidency in March’s election, the three members of the band high-kicked and danced in Moscow’s main cathedral while singing “Virgin Mary, drive Putin away!”

Two albums will be released Oct. 16 to celebrate the partnership, which has raised more than $100 million for Special Olympics. “A Very Special Christmas 25th Anniversary” will be released on Big Machine Records and Word Records will issue “A Very Special Christmas: Bringing Peace on Earth.”
Actor Charlie Sheen, a lifelong Cincinnati Reds fan, has pledged to donate $50,000 to the team’s Community Fund, matching the amount broadcaster Marty Brennaman raised for charity in return for having his head shaved on the field.
Mr. Sheen and father Martin Sheen, a Dayton, Ohio, native, were at the Reds game against Pittsburgh on Friday and saw Mr. Brennaman get his head shaved. Mr. Brennaman had promised to shave his hair if the Reds won 10 consecutive games and said he would do it publicly if fans donated at least $20,000 to the Reds fund.
That drive generated $50,000, and Charlie Sheen — on hand at Great American Ball Park for the entire weekend series, announced Sunday that he planned to match that amount.
