“We Are The World” was released 25 years after the original recording, during the Winter Olymics Opening ceremony last night. Over 70 celebrities recorded the song on February 1st, 2010, in the same studio as the original 25 years ago – which was created to combat famine and disease in Africa by “U.S.A. For Africa.”
Earlier this month, the celebrities gathered in Henson Recording Studios (which used to be A&M Recording Studios) to record “We Are The World 25 For Haiti.”
From Youtube: Quincy Jones and Lionel Richie serve as executive producers on the song, “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.”
