Michael Jackson - We are the World - The Story Behind the Song
I remember when "We Are The World" was created. It was in 1985. For years the world was hearing about the horrendous starvation in Ethiopia. What could we do? We pressured the American and the world politicians to release funds and humanitarian help to the suffering people in Africa, but... It was like a proverbial drop of water in the desert! Even with the attention that this effort by some of the most renown musical artists of the time drummed up, I still don't think that there was nearly enough aid that reached those in need.
Tell me, we are doing better now!
