Music on Mondays — We are the world
On this date in 1985, quite a few famous recording artists got together to record “We Are The World.” With the political divisiveness in the United States, the basic problems of life that still exist worldwide, the nightclub fire in Brazil that claimed over 200 lives, the globalization of the world’s economies, the 24/7 worldwide news cycle due to the Internet……. on and on……… maybe it’s time to remember that we are the world. Emphasis on WE!
“We Are The World” was written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Ritchie. It was released as a single on March 7, 1985, and went on to sell an estimated 20 million copies worldwide, making it the best selling single in the history of pop music.
The 52-person band and singers included the five Jacksons, Lionel Ritchie, Steve Wonder, Paul Simon, Kenny Rogers, Tina Turner, Billy Joel, Diana Ross, Dionne Warwick, Willie Nelson, Al Jarreau, Bruce Springsteen, Kenny Loggins, Bob Dylan, Ray Charles, Bette Midler, Dan Aykroyd, Harry Belafonte, and many others. It’s fun to watch the video and try to identify everyone.
