Background

“We Are the World 25 for Haiti” is a charity single recorded by Artists for Haiti with vocals by Taj Jackson, Taryll Jackson and TJ Jackson. It is a remake of the 1985 hit song “We Are the World” by USA for Africa, which was written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie, and was recorded by USA for Africa to benefit famine relief in Africa.

The 25th Anniversary recording features over 80 artists and performers. The recording of ‘We Are The World 25 For Haiti’ embodied the same enthusiasm, sense of purpose and generosity as the original recording 25 years ago. Every one of the artists who participated, regardless of genre or generation, walked into the room with their hearts and souls completely open to coming together to help the people of Haiti.
