" WE ARE THE WORLD " ...NOW AND THEN
"WE ARE THE WORLD"...NOW AND THEN.....
"This one, the enthusiasm, I've never seen anything like it,"
said Lionel Richie, who wrote the original with Michael Jackson
and oversaw the new version with music mogul Quincy Jones, 76.
Jones, who produced the 1985 anthem, announced last week that
he planned to redo the song to benefit recovery efforts after
the devastating 7.0-magnitude earthquake struck Haiti on Jan. 12.
"We Are the World _ 25 for Haiti" will premiere this month
during coverage of the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics
on NBC, according to a release from promoter AEG Live.
