I don't know about any of you, but I CANNOT wait to hear the new version of "We are the World!" The original one is so awesome and I can only imagine how amazing the latest one will be! There is something so moving about seeing all of these talented artist come together for something like this. Artist who have all their own style of music but come together to bring hope and relief to others who are in need! How amazing is that!! Even Lil Wayne was there, ha ha!
After MJ died I went to Youtube and watched the original "We are the World" over and over. I would just get chills hearing it and seeing it! I can't even explain what a touching song this is and the impact it has! Again, so awesome!!!
Quincy Jones produced the original one in 1985 (I was 3, ha ha) and he produce the latest one again, along with Lionel Richie. Quincy said that he has been asked about 30 times over the years to do this song again, but that the time just never seemed right. He said now after what has happened in Haiti, this was the time. I also like to think that it is a tribute in a way to Michael Jackson too. He had such a big part in making the original version happen, and I think it would make him so proud to know that celebs have come together to do this again and to help others!
I would love to name ALL the celebs and artists that participated in this grand event, but that would take a while since there are SO many of them! But if you are curious, look it up. Some of them will surprise you!
