Remember this famous 1985 video? “We Are The World” was written by Quincy Jones with the late Michael Jackson, and single’s proceeds went to African famine relief. The music video featured an all-star cast, including Lionel Richie, Diana Ross, Bruce Springsteen, Bette Midler, Bob Dylan, Cyndi Lauper, and Billy Joel. The recording took place during the American Music Awards on January 28, 1985.
According to Wenn, Lionel Richie plans to re-team with Quincy Jones to produce a 2010 remake of “We Are The World,” this time for the benefit of Haiti earthquake victims.
I wonder which musicians they’re tapping for the remake. I’d love to see Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake, Janet Jackson, and Beyonce, to name a few.
