Everybody Hurts + We Are The World = Haiti relief
Biggest names in music industry lined up to lend their voices to the major music effort to help Haiti. Two songs have been recorded independently though proceeds from the both will be donated to charity organizations for Haiti relief.
The first track, ‘We Are The World’, that was originally written by Lionel Richi for Michael Jackson 25 years ago to put a spotlight on the tragedy of famine in Africa has been revived to make a change this time again, helping victims of the earthquake in Haiti.
The recording was held on Feb. 1, 2010 with more than 50 stars contributing to the song, Barbara Streisand, Kanye West, Miley Cyrus, Beyonce, Jay-Z, Justin Timberlake, Lady GaGa, Justin Bieber, Janet Jackson, Jennifer Hudson and even Michale Jackson’s kids among them.
The track is produced by Quincy Jones just like the original version 25 years ago.
Coinciding with ‘We Are The World’ recording, American Idol judge and music mogul Simon Cowell teamed up with more than 20 stars to cover REM’s classic ballad ‘Everybody Hurts.’ The song features Rod Stewart, Kylie Minogue, Leona Lewis, Mariah Carey, Jon Bon Jovi, Miley Cyrus, Susan Boyle, Mika, Michael Buble, James Morrison, James Blunt, Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and others, and will be available for purchase starting Feb. 7th.
