Recorded on February 1st, 2010, in the same studio as the original 25 years earlier (Henson Recording Studios, formerly A&M Recording Studios) “We Are The World 25 For Haiti”, in which Quincy Jones and Lionel Richie serve as executive producers and producers, was created in collaboration with executive producers Wyclef Jean, Randy Phillips and Peter Tortorici; producers Humberto Gattica and RedOne; and co-producers Rickey Minor, Mervyn Warren and Patti Austin to benefit the Haitian earthquake relief efforts and the rebuilding of Haiti.

Academy Award-winning writer-director Paul Haggis (Crash, Million Dollar Baby), whose own personal efforts as well as those of Artists for Peace and Justice have already saved countless lives in Haiti, filmed the private recording session to create the accompanying video and behind-the-scenes production, and serves as Film Director and as an Executive Producer with Jones, Richie, Jean, Phillips and Tortorici. The 25th Anniversary recording features over 80 artists and performers.

The recording of We Are The World 25 For Haiti embodied the same enthusiasm, sense of purpose and generosity as the original recording 25 years ago.

Every one of the artists who participated, regardless of genre or generation, walked into the room with their hearts and souls completely open to coming together to help the people of Haiti.

Song Lyrics :

There comes a time
When we hear the certain call
When the world must come together as one
There are people dying
And it’s time to lend a hand to life
The greatest gift of all

We can’t go on
Pretending day by day
That someone somehow will soon make a change
We are all a part of God’s great big family
And the truth you know, love is all we need

We are the world
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let’s start giving
There’s a choice we’re making
We’re saving our own lives
It’s true we’ll make a better day
Just you and me

Well, send them your heart
So they know that someone cares
So their cries for help
Will not be in vain

We can’t let them suffer
No, we cannot turn away
Right now they need a helping hand

Nou sé mond la
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let’s start giving
There’s a choice we’re making
We’re saving our own lives
It’s true we’ll make a better day
Just you and me

When you’re down and out
And there seems no hope at all
But if you just believe
There’s no way we can fall
Well, well, well, let us realize
That a change can only come when we
Stand together as one

We are the world
(We are the children)
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let’s start giving
Better start giving

There’s a choice we’re making
We’re saving our own lives

It’s true we’ll make a better day
Just you and me

We are the world
(We are the children)
We are the children
It’s for the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
(So let’s start giving)
So let’s start giving

There’s a choice we’re making
We’re saving our own lives
It’s true we’ll make a better day
Just you and me

We are the world
(We are the world)
(We are the children)
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let’s start giving
Let’s start giving

There’s a choice we’re making
We’re saving our own lives
It’s true we make a better day
Just you and me

Come on now let me hear youWe are the world
(We are the children)
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let’s start giving
Let’s start giving

There’s a choice were making
We’re saving our own lives
It’s true we’ll make a better day
Just you and me

We all need somebody that we can lean on
When you wake up look around and see that your dream’s gone
When the earth quakes we’ll help you make it through the storm
When the floor breaks a magic carpet to stand on
We are the world united by love so strong
When the radio isn’t on you can hear the songs
A guided light on the dark road you’re walking on
A sign post to find the dreams you thought was gone
Someone to help you move the obstacles you stumbled on
Someone to help you rebuild after the rubble’s gone
We are the world connected by a common bond
Love the whole planet’s singing along

We are the world
(We are the world)
We are the children
(We are the children)
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let’s start giving
Let’s start giving

There’s a choice we’re making
We’re saving our own lives
It’s true we make a better day
Just you and me

Everyday citizens
Everybody pitching inNou sé mond la
Nou sé mond
Nou sé timoun yo
Nou sé timoun yo

You and I
You and IUh, 12 days no water
What’s your will to live?
We amplified the love we watching multiply
Feeling like the world’s end
We can make the world win
Like Katrina, Africa, Indonesia
And now Haiti needs us, they need us, they need us

We are the world
(We are the children)
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let’s start giving
Nou sé mond la

There’s a choice we’re making
We’re saving our own lives
It’s true we make a better day
Just you and me

Haiti, Haiti, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha
Haiti, Haiti, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha
Haiti
