 Quincy Jones and Lionel Richie Re-Recording “We Are the World” for Haiti

January 21st, 2010 7:01 am / Author: Luisa Metcalfe

Super-producer Quincy Jones and Lionel Richie are planning a massive 25th anniversary re-recording of “We Are the World” with proceeds going to the humanitarian crisis in Haiti.

The music legends are calling on artists who’ll be in L.A on Grammy weekend to stay an extra night (Monday, Feb. 1) to re-record “We Are the World” at the Nokia Theater, 25 years after the super-group, USA for Africa (featuring singers like Michael Jackson and Billy Joel) sang the original, reports Showbiz 411.

So far, artists invited include Usher, Natalie Cole, and John Legend, but many more will be added shortly. Grammy producer Ken Ehrlich will produce the event which will be turned into a video and single just as it was in 1985.

This anniversary celebration was originally planned to be held on Jan. 28 but when the Haiti earthquake happened, sources say the whole deal changed.

Now proceeds will go to Haiti relief. In 1985, “We Are the World,” which begat Live Aid, raised money for Africa relief.

Michael Jackson co-wrote “We Are the World” with Lionel, and sources think the King of Pop will be invoked during the re-recording somehow. Quincy will guide the recording.

Those artists are nothing like what was brought together for the original.

The only worth listening to it for WOULD be MJ.

You rocked my world, you know you did
And everything I own I give
The rarest love who\'d think I\'d find
Someone like you to call mine
