We Are The World ~ Haiti

Personally, I like it.  They updated it and signed on artists who will ensure great sales.

I don’t get the criticism of this effort. I liked the hip hop portion of the song.  This is a more contemporary tune with current music stars.  That will only help sales.

Anything that is done will be criticized by someone, though.

The only thing that I don’t like about the song is that it highlighted how out of touch I am with the States these days.  I didn’t know who half of the artists were.  I was amazed at the voices of Jennifer Hudson and Celine Dion.

I wish the endeavor success and I hope that the monies raised go towards helping the right people.
