USA For Africa: We Are The World

A multitude of pop singers, called USA for Africa, perform "We are the World" for USA for Africa in 1985. The song, written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie, was produced by Quincy Jones and Michael Omartian for the album of the same name. The names of all singers areall listed at the end of the video; all were huge pop performers in the 1980s. Happy Holidays to all, always hoping for the best and doing what we can to better the world. Despite the heavy odds against it, the yearnings for peace remain alive.


I wish everyone Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year. Let's hope that 2013 is better than 2012. I will be not posting anything for a few weeks—as I rest, reflect and recharge—and return with more articles and music in mid-to-late January 2013.
