The sun had just set in Los Angeles on Monday when a constellation of pop stars emptied into the sprawling courtyard of Henson Recording Studios on La Brea Avenue. They were enjoying an extended break after spending hours crammed in Studio A, singing a 25th anniversary remake of We Are the World to benefit earthquake relief in Haiti.
This updated version of the beloved charity ballad first composed to benefit famine relief in Africa will be officially called We are the World — 25 for Haiti and will premiere during the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics in Vancouver on February 12.
All of the proceeds from sales will go to earthquake relief efforts.
