The song premiered Friday evening during the 2010 Winter Olympics and is available for download via itunes. It was recorded February 1st, 2010, in the same studio as the original 25 years earlier (Henson Recording Studios, formerly A&M Recording Studios).
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.
As I picked up my box of roses off the porch this afternoon, this song immediately came to mind. Then I found this classic performance video of Outkast on David Letterman and this post was born. It’s classic I tell ya!
The whole dayum family was onstage! I see you baby brotha….Rod… Bentley…. Twannnn!
I’ve got my eye on you too Cupid Valentino *cough* I mean….Dre’.
