Witches' Brew: “We Are The World” – part deux

“We Are The World” – part deux

The fact that it's been 25 years since "We Are The World" kinda makes me feel friggin' old. But I digress… here's the story.

Quincy Jones and Lionel Richie are convening a new crop of stars (many of whom weren't even around for the first song…another fact that makes me feel old) to do a 25th anniversary version of "We Are The World."

The singers taking part will stay an extra night after the Grammy awards to do the song in LA. So far, Usher, Natalie Cole and John Legend are on board.

The song is right on time since the people of Haiti can use any money raised by the sale of the song.

Aww, now I've got a case of the "I miss Michael Jackson" sads. 

By the way, the Grammy Awards air on CBS, January 31 at 8 pm (ET).

I used to have the poster of this above my bed when I was a young teen.

I'm not old, I'm seasoned.

I don't know if I still have it. It was one of the good ones that had all of the names of the performers on it. Even the people in the back.
