We Are The World Video Released – Donate Now

Receiving over 1.2 million views already, the newly-released video of We Are The World 25 has surely gotten the attention of many.

While many already say that they are overwhelmed with the response received from people all over the globe to help Haiti after the devastating earthquake hit the country, they are also afraid that after the television commercials or the news have ceased – the help will cease as well. People will still be suffering, and many people still need the care and the help of individuals even when the lights go off.

There were many surprises in the video including the appearance of the King of Pop himself, Michael Jackson.  I was surprised to see Enrique Iglesias as well.  It is indeed a work of love.

Recorded on February 1st, 2010, in the same studio as the original 25 years earlier (Henson Recording Studios, formerly A&M Recording Studios) “We Are The World 25 For Haiti“, in which Jones and Richie serve as executive producers and producers, was 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.
