As you may have heard, a bunch of singers (and Vince Vaughn) came together to lend their voices and their starpower to a rerecording of “We Are The World” in an effort to raise funds for the rebuilding of Haiti.
Here is their effort:
“We Are The World” was written 25 years ago by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie. Since its release in 1985, the original single has raised over $63 million for aid in Africa.
So what I’m wondering is, will this recording have the same effect as the original, inspiring people to open up their wallets and give, or have we all become a little too cynical for this kind of thing?
How many of you have purchased or plan to purchase the single, and how many of you would rather pay to never hear this song again?
