USA For Africa – We Are The World [30th Anniversary] [HD with Names]

This historic recording was released on April 23, 1985 and came about on the heels of Bob Geldof’s U.K. project, “Do They Know It’s Christmas” [December 1984], both directed to help famine relief in Africa.

Produced by Quincy Jones and Michael Omartian, recording began on January 22, 1985 with Lionel Richie and Michael Jackson at Kenny Rogers’ Lion’s Share Recording studio in Beverly Hills. The song, written by Richie and Jackson, was worked out with a demo track in one night, using the 6th take as the final before sending out tapes to the artists involved.      Continue reading
