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.
