We Are The World 25 For Haiti – Official Video

45



Recorded on February 1st, 2010, in the same studio as the original 25 years earlier (Henson Recording Studios, formerly A&M Recording Studios) “We Are The World 25 For Haiti”, in which Quincy Jones and Lionel Richie serve as executive producers and producers, was created in collaboration with executive producers Wyclef Jean, Randy Phillips and Peter Tortorici; producers Humberto Gattica and RedOne; and co-producers Rickey Minor, Mervyn Warren and Patti Austin to benefit the Haitian earthquake relief efforts and the rebuilding of Haiti.

Academy Award-winning writer-director Paul Haggis (Crash, Million Dollar Baby), whose own personal efforts as well as those of Artists for Peace and Justice have already saved countless lives in Haiti, filmed the private recording session to create the accompanying video and behind-the-scenes production, and serves as Film Director and as an Executive Producer with Jones, Richie, Jean, Phillips and Tortorici.

The 25th Anniversary recording features over 80 artists and performers. The recording of We Are The World 25 For Haiti embodied the same enthusiasm, sense of purpose and generosity as the original recording 25 years ago. Every one of the artists who participated, regardless of genre or generation, walked into the room with their hearts and souls completely open to coming together to help the people of Haiti.

  1. Sang this song as the last song of 8th grade, I had 3 parts, 1 of which was a solo for Michael Jacksons famous part. I was nervous out of my mind but so honored. I love this song. R.I.P Michael Jackson.

  2. I don't expect this to happen, but if these singers practiced what they preached, they can scavenge a measly $50,000 each and donate to Haiti. Some like Wyclef and Sandra Bullock did donate millions, but when you have $20,000,000 in the bank, what's 1/4 of 1 percent?

  3. kinda funny that almost all of them are mainstream artists doing this to get publicity and more fame, they sing about helping the people and afterwards they go home to their million dollar houses and dont give a fuck about the people of the world.

  4. you dont know what you are talking abouuuut… he his among the most respected black musicians on earth .. his name is WYCLEF JEAN… listen to any of his songs and remake ur statement :)

  5. At first I heard the original version and then I listened to that … the beginning: Lionel Richie vs. Justin Bieber … I laughed so hard XD
