We are the world – Earthquake in Japan

“We are the World” is the song and Charity single originally recorded by the supergroup USA for Africa in 1985 . It was written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie, and produced by Quincy Jones and Michael Omartian  (Wikipedia)

A remake of the song by another all-star cast of singers was recorded on February 1, 2010 following the devastation caused by the earthquake in Haiti.

Following the devastation caused by the 8,9 - magnitude earthquake in Japan, the strongest tremor ever recorded in Japan, the tsunami swept over northern coastal towns, and at least 10,000 people are confirmed dead. However, government officials say the death toll will rise.  

Humanitarian aid is needed – help raise money to help earthquake, tsunami victims in Japan. Respond with cash and support recovery projects in the affected areas.  Hopefully the song - "We are the world" will inspire you once more.
