Watch the full vesion of We Are The World Remake to Help Fund Haiti
Quincy Jones and Lionel Richie arranged re-make of the 1985 group song “We Are The World;” the new version titled “We Are the World – 25 for Haiti” was recorded to benefit the victims of the earthquake in Haiti.
If you can remember the original We Are the World raised more than $30m for food relief in Africa when it was released in 1985.
Instead of Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Cyndi Lauper and the late Michael Jackson (whose previously recorded voice, however, will be heard on the tune), the 2010 version will be headlined by Justin Bieber, Lil Wayne, Wyclef Jean, Josh Groban and Will.I.Am. It features a newly penned hip-hop break written by the Black Eyed Peas leader that makes reference to the January 12 earthquake in Haiti, the victims of which will benefit from the song’s proceeds.
Among the rap artists making the cut for “We Are the World — 25 for Haiti” are T-Pain, Kanye West, Bizzy Bone, Kid Cudi, LL Cool J, Snoop Dogg, Drake, Mann, Nipsey Hussle, Busta Rhymes and Swizz Beatz.
