Stars remake 'We Are the World' for Haiti

Dozens of recording stars began recording at a Hollywood studio yesterday to add their voices to a song they hope will raise millions of dollars for Haitian earthquake relief.

The lyrics and music are an updated version of "We Are the World," a song that raised at least $30 millions for African humanitarian programs 25 years ago. Lionel Richie, who co-wrote the first song with Michael Jackson, organized the effort. The original producer, Quincy Jones, used the same studio he used in 1985.

Some of the singers on this updated song include: Usher, Gladys Knight, Natalie Cole, Kanye West, Celine Dion, Melanie Fiona, Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Hudson, Anthony Hamilton, Mary Mary, Trey Songz, India.Arie, Musiq Soulchild and more.

The song will debut at the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics.

Think it is good thing, but not going to be same without Michael, I agree not really looking for any Rap on the song, Rap is cool, but its getting old to me they all sound the same.

It's ironic that it took a devastation of this magnitude to bring the stars back to remake this song as a tribute to a cause that Michael saw 25 years ago which was to help others who are less fortunate in the world.

We are the world is a classic and I can’t wait to hear the remake! The original is already in my iPod and when I hear it, it brings tears to my eyes. So I hope the remake is hot and very uplifting as well.
