We Are the World Remake
The 25-year anniversary remake of "We Are the World" debuted last night during Winter Olympics coverage on NBC.
The production featured over 80 artists and celebrities, as the video below features the young (Justin Bieber), the high (Snoop Dogg) and the deceased (Michael Jackson sang a posthumous duet with sister Janet, using old footage).
Vince Vaughn even got a solo.
We heard John Mayer was invited, but turned down the appearance because he heard black and gay people might be there.)
As Jamie Foxx says in the introduction, the purpose of the song is to unite people from across the globe and to encourage donations to the victims of the earthquake in Haiti. It's a great cause and we applaud all those involved.
