We Are The World 2010 Video Premiere

February 13, 2010

The world premiere of “We Are The World 25 For Haiti” music video was first unveiled today as during the 2010 Winter Olympics before its YouTube premiere earlier today. Today’s mainstream artists recorded the song at the Jim Henson Studios on February 1, 2010 in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the original song co-written by the late King of Pop Micheal Jackson and Lionel Richie.


Oscar-winning-actor Jamie Foxx opened up the clip with a brief introduction. I think it’s both notable and commandable that today’s artists came together for a great cause.  Proceeds from the song will benefit aid to Haiti quake survivors. Kudos to Quincy Jones and Lionel Richie for getting the vocals just right and I appreciate the rap part added to it. Bonus trivia: The song was recorded at the same recording studio as the original! It didn’t top the original of course but it’s a solid performance track nonetheless.

“As producers, Quincy and I helped to create an incredibly compelling piece of contemporary entertainment that will serve, in part, as a social instrument for relief and rebirth for the island nation of Haiti,” said Richie. “Director Paul Haggis gave our participating stars the visual platform that showcases their immense talents and hearts. When organizations like Coca-Cola join us and our other corporate partners in our quest to get this message out, how can we fail? The marketing collateral and assets that Coca-Cola is providing to this effort underscore how corporate participation can have a profound effect on the support we need from millions of people who care.” SOURCE
