We are the world 2010: New stars remake 80s anthem to help Haiti

Dozens of top music artists got together at the Jim Henson Studios in Los Angeles to record the 1985 'We Are the World' hit single written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie to raise money to help Haiti.

There have been many disasters in the past quarter century. Most natural, some wrought by the hands of man.

None of these, however, was deemed worthy of a remake of the now-classic 1985 hit "We Are the World" – until a magnitude 7.0 earthquake leveled Haiti on Jan. 12, killing an estimated 150,000 and leaving 1 million homeless.

Now famed producer Quincy Jones, who recorded the original song written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie, is on a fresh quest to revamp the old magic using today's top pop artists.

Mr. Jones and Mr. Richie asked Moroccan-Swedish hit producer RedOne to take part in the rerecording, reports Rolling Stone.
The list of celebrities include: Lionel Richie, Wyclef Jean, Celine Dion, The Jonas Brothers, Justin Bieber, Carlos Santana, will.i.am, Jamie Foxx, Miley Cyrus, Snoop Dogg, Celine Dion, Keith Urban, Jeff Bridges, Vince Vaughn, Usher, Jennifer Hudson, Natalie Cole, Akon, T-Pain, Lil Wayne, Toni Braxton, Josh Groban, Zac Brown, Gladys Knight, Justin Bieber, Harry Connick Jr., LL Cool J, Robin Thicke, Rob Thomas, Jordin Sparks, Good Charlotte’s Madden brothers, Keri Hilson, Tyrese, Katharine McPhee, Sean Garrett and Melanie Fiona.

Watch a sneak peek of the 'We Are The World' re-make below.
