We previously informed you about Quincy Jones’ quest to re-record the 1985 hit, “We Are the World.” Jones produced the song which Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie wrote together and it became an instant classic when all three invited singers from every genre to record for the benefit of USA For Africa.
Now, after the devastating earthquake in Haiti, Jones and Richie have rounded up some of the biggest stars of the current generation to lend their talents to great use and make a difference once again.
According to E! and MTV, Jones did quite a bit of recruiting during the Grammys. The music session to take place a day after the award ceremony seemed to be the bigger event than the one that was actually going on. Just last night, Jones has recruited Lady Gaga, Jason Mraz, Akon, Jennifer Hudson, Carlos Santana, Enrique Iglesias, Trey Songz, Stevie Wonder, Bono, Usher and Toni Braxton.
