 We Are The World is twenty-five years old. Wow! Forever-current issues remind us that our brethren need a helping hand.

Aside from raising our awareness, it is one astounding piece of music history... over forty amazing artists together for a marathon recording session of ten hours, producing the most recognizable mini-concert ever. Back in the eighties, its sales raised sixty-three million dollars to help feed the hungry in Africa.

At this Sunday's Grammy Awards, Quincy Jones and Lionel Richie intend to request a similar recording session by many of the incredible artists who will be present. Haiti shall be the recipient of its sales profits. Bittersweet is the need for a remix; exciting is the prospect of grouping together so many of our gifted. Surely, it shall move us in the ongoing effort to help the devastated. The power of music... is there anything quite like it?
