Michael Jackson Lionel Richie – “We Are the World 25 for Haiti”

Why did you pick this song? What does it do for you?

1. This is a song for the world, for everyone.

2. The new version of We are the World includes a rap verse which was written by the song’s hip hop artists. It is truly a big surprise.

3. Michael Jackson died months before the song’s release, but his material from the 1985 recording sessions was incorporated into the song and music video. Another surprise. King of Pop is still with us.

Anything else you want to say?

I treat Michael Jackson as important as J.S.Bach.

Where can we find you?
