Thanksgiving Throwback Thursday

"We Are the World"

United Support of Artists (USA) for Africa was an unprecedented effort at the time. To raise relief funds for drought-stricken Africa, recording artists gathered in 1985 following the Grammy Awards to record this song by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie. Quincy Jones directed and produced the recording. One of the singers (I can't recall which one) said that Quincy Jones asked all of the artists to check their egos at the door, and they produced a truly inspiring recording! It is good to be reminded that beauty, harmony, and goodwill can sometimes prevail.
