‘We Are the World 25 for Haiti’ debuts in Vancouver Olympics (video)

We Are the World Haiti Video

The updated version of We Are the World, called We Are the World 25 for Haiti, premiered Friday during NBC’s coverage of the opening ceremonies of the 2010 Winter Olympics.

In the video, we got to hear the sound of some 85 artists, from teen sensation Justin Bieber to rap superstar Kanye West, lifting their voices as one to help raise funds for earthquake relief in Haiti.

Michael Jackson, who co-wrote the original track with Lionel Richie, is shown in a clip from the original music video. In the remake, the late King of Pop sings alongside his sister, Janet.


I think the updated take was horribly oversung, but perhaps you’ll disagree. Let us know what you think by writing on the comments section below.
