We Are the World - 25 for Haiti charity single


The charity anthem We Are the World has been re-made 25 years on from the original to raise money for Haiti.

Quincy Jones and Lionel Richie have recruited a host of star names for the project, with singers Celine Dion and Wyclef Jean, who is from Haiti.

The original We Are the World raised more than $30m for food relief in Africa when it was released in 1985.

The 2010 version, officially titled We Are the World - 25 for Haiti, will first be shown on US television coverage of the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics.
