We Are the World - 25 for Haiti

A few days ago I wrote an entry about "We Are the World" and I swear I didn't know it was going to be re-made. I love this song, I find it touching and I think the artists are or were all incredible! We played the song during the commemoration of the School Day of Non-Violence and Peace at our school and some of my students told me yesterday that it is being re-made to raise funds for Haiti. I haven't listened to the new version yet, it is not possible until February, 12, but the initiative is for a good cause again, and this is what really matters. Watch this video and read below for more information on the new version of the song:

Quincy Jones and Lionel Richie have arranged the re-make of the 1985 group song "We Are The World". The new version is titled "We Are the World - 25 for Haiti". It has been recorded to raise money to help the victims of the January 12 earthquake in Haiti that killed 170,000 people and devastated the poorest country in America. The new song was recorded on February 1, 2010, at Henson Recording Studios in Hollywood, California.

Richie and Jones have recruited 81 performers for the 2010 remake of "We are the World". Some of them are Celine Dion, Pink, the Jonas Brothers, Justin Beiber, Jeff Bridges, Vince Vaughn, Nicole Richie, Carlos Santana, Akon, Usher, Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg, Josh Groban, Jennifer Hudson, Barbra Streisand, Miley Cyrus, Kanye West, Mya, Tony Bennett and Haiti activist Wyclef Jean, amongst many others.

The We are the World 25 for Haiti video will be produced in 3D and will be broadcast during the opening ceremony of the 2010 Winter Olympics.
