Miley Cyrus flexed her vocal chords on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” last night to debut her new cover of Bob Dylan’s song “You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go.’

Cyrus is just one of many artists contributing to an album of Dylan covers, all to benefit Amnesty International. Other stars include Adele, Maroon 5, Ke$ha, Elvis Costello, Lenny Kravitz, Queens of the Stone Age and Sting.

In fact, there are four CD’s full of Dylan’s music with 80 different performers on “Chimes of Freedom: The Songs of Bob Dylan Honoring 50 Years of Amnesty International.”

The CD’s are out now so you can hear all of the musicians performing their Dylan Covers, paying tribute not only to an amazing organization, but also to a singer who has stood up for human rights his entire career.

Check out Miley’s performance.
