Over 75 artists gathered in Hollywood on February 1, 2010 to record the 25th Anniversary version of "We Are The World."

On February 1, over 75 stars gathered at the Henson Recording Studios in Hollywood, CA to record the 25th Anniversary  version of “We Are The World.”  The collection of artists and celebrities was incredible,  from Akon to Zac Brown and everyone in between.  Lionel Richie, who produced the original version with Michael Jackson,  was on hand once again to help produce this all new 2010 version.

Proceeds from this new recording and the accompanying video will go directly to Haitian relief efforts through the We Are The World Foundation. If you want to help out you can got to iTunes and download the song or video at www.iTunes.com/wearetheworld or you can text “world” to 50555 to donate $10 via your mobile account.

I already mentioned Zac Brown, but some other artists with a tie to country music you’ll catch a glimpse of in the video include Sugarland, Julianne Hough, Miley Cyrus, and Jeff Bridges.

I applaud all the stars for taking time out to participate in this uplifting project and for continuing to help drive fund-raising efforts for Haiti.   There are way too many stars to mention by name in this post,  so just click on the video below and see for yourself.  Have fun trying to spot all your favorites…

Leave me a comment and let me know what you think of the 2010 version of “We Are The World”  and tell me what other country stars you would like to have seen in the video…
