I can’t remember what was going on in my world in 1985. A lot of distractions, evidently, because I didn’t know about the release of a song called “We Are The World”. I vaguely remember hearing it and liking the song, but didn’t know the story behind it. For those of you who were also distracted, lived other places, or who weren’t born yet, the song was a project dreamed up by Lionel Richie with Michael Jackson collaborating. They gathered American performing artists and recorded the song to raise funds for famine relief in Africa. I would love to have been there that evening. The energy in the room must have been electrifying.
Here is the recording, to uplift your day. Following the video is another, the hour long documentary of the making of the song. If you don’t have time for that, but want to read up on it, you can check out the USA Today article with some interesting trivia, and the list of performers.
