New version of “We Are the World” to raise money for Haiti

More than 80 performers  came together earlier this month to record an updated version of “We Are the World.” Money raised from the song will benefit earthquake relief efforts in Haiti.

The classic song was written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie. The song came out in 1985 to “bring relief to those suffering from famine in Ethiopia,” Quincy Jones said on the We Are the World Foundation‘s Web site. To watch the video of the new version, click here.
