A ton of celebs came out to help the Haiti relief efforts by re-recording the 1985 charity single “We are the World.” Everyone from Jennifer Hudson to Kanye West came out to lend their artistry to the track.  We also hear that Michael’s kids Paris and Prince also were involved in the re-recording.

Pop the top for more flicks and video footage from the studio session.

    It won’t and can’t top the original, but the cause is just as important! Big ups to whoever could manage all those big egos

  • MJfan4LIFE

    Of course the original track can’t be beat but kudos to the remake. It’s a very important cause.

    I thank god Beyonce and her FAKE husband were NOT in attendence.

    Jennifer Hudson and her powerful voice could have sung that all by herself.

    Why didn’t they just write and record a brand new song. Somethings aren’t meant to be messed with. This song is one of them.

    I am surprised Beyonce and are attention hogging self wasn’t there.

  • Aunt Viv

    Noble effort for a wonderful cause. I still prefer the original-I miss James Ingram, Tina Turner, Stevie Wonder, shoo, even Kenny Rogers. MJ would be proud though RIP.

  • No you din't

    It’s for a good cause (but it won’t be as as good as the original with the greatest Michael Jackson). I am glad to see that they got some people who actually have talent like Gladys Knight, Barbara Streisand, Celine Dion, Jennifer Hudson, Tyrese, etc but I didn’t know that the dude from Wedding Crashers could sing (well the original had Dan Ackroyd so I guess it’s fair to have him).

    The worst! I say the same about lil wayne but Snoop!!!???
    Now I cant even take it seriously. Oye vay!

  • Lady Architect (Norma Merrick Sklarek)

    ok its true afterlistening to the old about 3 times already there’s no way the classic version can be touched with the singers they had in that one, but I’m sure this will be good cause Quincy is orchestrating it yet again and stars have no choice but to check their egos at the door because it is an honor to work with Quincy and I’m sure he had no problem replacing any of their egos…I’m sure there will be no rapping on this…atleast I hope not.

    LOOKS LIKE A FAIL!
