“We Are The World: 25 For Haiti”

by W. Andrew Powell

We Are The World: 25 For Haiti
Bringing together some of the music industry’s biggest names, “We Are The World: 25 For Haiti” debuted last night during NBC’s Olympic broadcast in the U.S.

Coordinated partly by original “We Are The World” producer Quincy Jones, the new single was co-produced by RedOne and Wyclef Jean, who is also a native Haitian. The single includes vocals by Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Hudson, Usher, P!nk, Barbra Streisand, Josh Groban, Fergie, Mary J. Blige, Will.i.am, Tony Bennett, Kanye West, and yes, even Justin Bieber, just to name a few.

Benefiting the relief effort in Haiti through donations and single sales on iTunes, the song is also noteworthy because it includes Michael Jackson’s original performance in harmony with his sister, Janet Jackson.

Ahhh – so many great voices united. Of course the Josh takes my heart. Thank you for posting this. I, unfortunatelly, was not overly impressed with this new version but applaud the artists for the many hours they dedicated and, as Josh mentioned, “Everyone left their ego’s at the door”. I know many more funds will be gained for the people of haiti.
