"We Are The World.."

Twenty-five years after the original recording, history was made once again on Monday night (Feb. 1) as over 75 stars gathered to record a contemporary remake of We Are the World at Henson Recording Studios in Hollywood. The recording session took place in the same studio as the original song written by Richie and Michael Jackson, and featured a diverse lineup including Lil Wayne (redoing Bob Dylans verse), Kanye West, Jennifer Hudson, Trey Songz, Drake, Barbra Streisand, Toni Braxton, Snoop Dogg, Usher, Pink, Jamie Foxx, T-Pain, Keri Hilson, Brandy, Robin Thicke, Miley Cyrus, Busta Rhymes, Nicole Scherzinger, Akon, Tony Bennett, Carlos Santana, and many others.

The world premiere of We Are the World 25 for Haiti relief, along with the accompanying 3-D video, will air during NBCs coverage of the Opening Ceremony of the Vancouver Winter Olympics on Friday, February 12,2010.
