'We Are The World' is a song with a rich history that continues to endure. The song was written in 1985 by music icons Michael Jackson & Lionel Ritchie and performed by several American music stars of that era.

The song titled 'USA for Africa' was produced by the legendary producer Quincy Jones to bring global attention to the famine in Ethiopia.

The song was also covered in 2010 by 25 celebrities brought together by Haitian star Wyclef Jean to bring attention to the effects of the earthquake in his home country.

Since its release in 1985, the song has continued to serve as a call to action for social justice, especially with issues concerning children.
