If you haven't heard, just about all of the great music stars are coming together to re-record Michael Jackson's "We Are The World" as another way to raise money for Haiti.
No really... It seems like everyone is in this freakin' song. Look:
Pink, Lil Wayne, Eminem, Kanye West, Jonas Brothers, LL Cool J, Robin Thicke, Celine Dion, Akon, Rob Thomas, Wyclef Jean, Barbra Streisand, Jordin Sparks, Good Charlotte’s Madden brothers, Tony Bennett, Josh Groban, Snoop Dogg, Jennifer Hudson, Britney Spears, Keri Hilson, Jamie Foxx, Tyrese, Katharine McPhee, Will.i.am, Brandy, Carlos Santana, Enrique Iglesias, Toni Braxton, Jason Mraz, Miley Cyrus, Busta Rhymes, Nicole Scherzinger, Justin Bieber, Nicole Richie, Jay-Z, Usher, Julianne Hough, Zac Brown Band, India.Arie, Janet Jackson, Beyonce, Randy Jackson, Musiq Soulchild, Heart’s Ann and Nancy Wilson, Fonzworth Bentley, Kid Cudi, Iyaz, Lady Gaga, the Beach Boys’ Brian Wilson and Al Jardine, Trey Songz, Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, Mya and Gladys Knight.
And oh yeah... Vince Vaughn is also included... and more.
They literally had all of these people in one room to record a bunch of different parts and the chorus, and apparently everyone was super friendly and happy to be there. [Why wouldn't they be?! That's one hell of a group, and I bet many of them are meeting for the first time!]
Here's a couple sneak peeks into the recording and the song from Good Morning America:
Wow. Wow, wow, wow! I have goosebumps already! I can't imagine what it'll be like to hear the full version!
As terrible as it is to have benefit songs competing against each other, I don't think "Everybody Hurts" has any chance of beating "World" for the top spot... Even though I really enjoy it.
Leona Lewis, Rod Stewart, Mariah Carey, Cheryl Cole, Mika, Michael Buble, Joe McElderry, Miley Cyrus, James Blunt, Gary Barlow, Mark Owen, Jon Bon Jovi, James Morrison, Susan Boyle, Aston Merrygold, Marvin Humes, Shane Filan, Mark Feehily, Kylie Minogue, and Robbie Williams are all included in that one. Holy moly.
I love, love, love how we can all come together for other countries! Ah, it feels great to be an American right now... Even if I'm broke.
