So, here are some of the singers and musicians that are included:
Marco Hietala (Nightwish) - Christina Scabbia (Lacuna Coil) - Keith Emerson (Emerson Lake & Palmer) - Rick Wakeman (Yes) - Jordan Rudess (Dream Theater) - Steve Hackett (Genesis) - Troy Donockley (Nightwish) - John Wetton (King Crimson).
You must admit that this is a very impressive company of musicians, right?

P.S: I want to thank Mr. Michael Rutten who informed me about this release...
