WE ARE THE WORLD
Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie allowed their hearts and souls to fuse together for this world-acclaimed anthem. It was released on March 7, 1985. Its goal was to bring awareness to the poverty that was devastating Africa.
The song was a received a Quadruple Platinum certification. It raised $63 million dollars. (That would be equivalent to well over $149 million dollars, today.)
Enjoy a walk into the past.
