“We Are the World” remake to premiere on Vancouver 2010

Earlier this week, rock stars and artists united to rerecord the “We Are the World” charity song. The remake will benefit Haiti earthquake relief efforts.

The original was recorded 25 years ago in efforts to fund hunger relief in Africa.

The new anthem features 80+ artists including Wyclef Jean, Barbra Streisand, the Jonas Brothers, Jason Mraz, Josh Groban, T-Pain, Celine Dion, Robin Thicke, Carlos Santana, and Miley Cyrus.

Word has it that “We Are the World – 25 for Haiti” will be televised during the Vancouver 2010 Olympics opening ceremonies on NBC.
