'We Are The World 25 For Haiti' Debuts TONIGHT!

The world premiere of the “We Are The World” reboot will air tonight (February 12) at 8:45/7:45c during the Opening Ceremony of the Vancouver Winter Olympics!

With more than 80 artists involved and a good reason to re-record the song, “We Are The World 25 For Haiti” will raise money and make grants for efficient Haiti relief and continual development of programs to benefit the nation in the future through the newly created We Are The World Foundation.

As soon as the song premieres on NBC, it’ll be available for download and on World25.org, iTunes and on YouTube. You can see the music video on all three sites.

A bunch of Has Beens, trying to get back to the spotlight for a second.

# 3

Meh, Nobody good showed up.

# 4

weird all the has beens are in the front and the real artists are peppered in the middle/back

# 5

Real artists are in the back? Yeah unless you consider people like Justin Bieber, Black eyed peas and others REAL artists. No matter if some are has been’s or not, the likes of Barbra Streisand have more talent in their pinky than most of these young, talentless hacks have in their entire bodies. When will you silly little children on this site understand this?

# 6

@AutumnM: excuse me, more relevant artists: Josh Groban, Jonas Bros, Adam Levine, BEP, Justin B…yeah you’re right but babs is not hot in the streets right now SORRY OLD LADY!!

I’m 22, you silly child. I wasn’t even around when Streisand was at her peak, but thank god my Parents always played good music around the house so I know better. I know real talent and good music. I don’t care whose relevant or not. That doesn’t mean anything to me. Their music still sucks! Although I do like Jason Mraz and very few of these newer artists. These artists today can’t even sell records anyway. You’re considered successful these days if you go platinum, whereas before that was a joke. Artists in the 70′s,80′s and 90′s were selling 20 million records an album. Only thing is they had the talent to back it up as well.

Most of these artists today have no talent and can’t sell records (Beyonce, Gaga, Lil Wayne, Eminem are exceptions).

# 8

Oh, Alicia Keys as well I meant to say. She is young and has both talent and can sell records. A rare combination these days.

Speaking of has been’s, guess who’s #1 on the charts this week selling over 400,000 copies of their album? SADE! Haha, that’s right. 50 years old and selling more records than most of these young artists. I love when these older artists kick these newer, talentless artists ass.

@AutumnM: sade is amazing but lil wayne is just terrible so you lose. don’t be mad grandma!

also was sade even there? i don’t think so. i guess you’re just rambling cause you’re old and cranky.

I still don’t understand why they couldn’t write a new song…Why redo it….?? It just seems uncreative….

I just saw this..Though I love what they did with the song..the voices are not as strong as the original.

Saying that someone like Streisand is a has-been is pure ignorance and stupid.

Check the facts… out from a 20 tour date in 2006 the woman made 92$mil, she was part of the highest grossing comedy movie ever (Meet the Fockers in 2004) and her latest album “Love Is The Answer” debut at #1 last year, making her the only artist ever to achieve #1 albums in five consecutive decades.

I would donate to Haiti, many times over before I bought this song. Horrible and terrible song, out of sync with the video and the producers made a point of not including anyone from the original. Why was Michael Jackson in the video, he is gone, you can stop adding him into everything.

OMG this was horrible!!!!!! so so so terrible.

Wyclef is embarrassing!

nothing will ever be able to top the original.

OMG can’t believe Justin Bieber sang this.. he totally ruined the song

Original was so much better
Wyclef’s part was off-putting

Completely and utterly horrendous! From the rapping to the over-singing by some artists, it was dreadful.

Not bad but nothing will ever top the original version of this song and lil Wayne? Please!!! *rolls eyes*

at first i thought it was a girl singing to opening part but it was justin B who has not hit puberty yet

its pretty good :)

@happy girl: barely sounded like the original. Sounded like a bunch of wannabe’s trying get their name on a song they should have left alone. Leave the attitude at home! The original version did not have “rap”…poor decision Quincy!

@AutumnM: Amen!

I’m only 17 and I know this isn’t good.

Nothing will top Michael.

Ever.
