Remembering “We Are The World”

On this day in 1985, “We Are The World” by the supergroup USA for Africa hit #1 just three months after it was recorded.

Inspired by Bob Geldof’s and Midge Ure‘s Band Aid, the supergroup consisted of forty-four international superstars including Michael Jackson, Lionel Richie, Cyndi Lauper, Stevie Wonder, Bob Geldof, and many, many more, joining together in song to raise relief of poverty in Africa.

    The original is so good. The recent one with Biebs is so heavily autotuned.

    I agree Wakana! This is crazy that this song is 30 years old, it’s such an important moment in music and cultural history.
