Music To Inspire You
Welcome To
Music Moves Me!
Theme – Songs From Grammy Winners Of The 1980s

1985 – We Are The World

In 1985, Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie co-wrote “We Are The World” as a charity benefit single to raise funds for the African famine relief. A super-group consisting of the top artists of the day banded together to record the song, which was released on March 7, 1985.

”We Are The World” raised a ground-breaking $63 million in humanitarian aid and became the fastest selling American pop single in history. It received the 1985 Grammy Award for the Record Of The Year, Song Of The Year, and Pop Performance – Duo or Group With Vocal, as well as an American Music Award and a People’s Choice Award. It was the first single to ever be certified multi-platinum; it received a Quadruple Platinum certification by the recording Industry Association of American and has sold in excess of 20 million copies.

On January 12, 2010, a remake of the song featuring another all-star cast entitled “We Are The World 25 For Haiti” was recorded to rasie funds for the devastating 7.0 magnitude earthquake in Haiti.

Here is the original recording of the song.

Enjoy the music and have an amazing week!

I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!
