We Are the World 2010 to support Haiti relief

February 15th, 2010 · No Comments · Apple, Developing Areas

Back in 1985, Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie wrote “We Are the World”, performed by a group of the top celebrities and pop stars under the name USA for Africa. It was eventually named the biggest-selling single of all time and ended up raising about $100 million for relief of famine and disease to 18 countries in sub-Saharan Africa.

On February 1, 2010,  Quincy Jones and Lionel Richie gathered another set of celebrities and pop stars to re-record the song in the same studio the original was recorded in 25 years earlier.
