Been listening to this year's version of We are the world 2010 over and over again. Generally speaking I would say that I like it because the proceeds of their effort will go to Haitian. People who really needs our help right now.


Comparing the new version of We are the world 2010, I must say that I really like the original version. Well, whatever version it is, what matter is that they gathered together to help those in need.

Parts that I like with the We are the world 25 for Haiti  :
  • Miley Cyrus part
  • Jamie Fox's acting like Stevie Wonder
  • Lead guitar done by Santana
  • Greek chorus extension
  • Featured Jason Mraz
  • Retained Michael Jackson's part
Please purchase this track on iTunes as all proceeds go to support relief efforts in Haiti.

FromWikipedia entry:
The new version features updated lyrics and music, such as a rap segment pertaining to Haiti, described as a "Greek chorus extension", which was written by will.i.am.[13][12][14][15]  Other writers included Kanye West, Jones and LL Cool J.[7]  Lionel Richie and Jones revealed that Michael Jackson's younger sister Janet  duets with her late brother, as per a request from their mother Katherine Jackson. In the official video, there is archive footage of Michael Jackson from the original 1985 recording.[8]  Richie said that he agreed with Katherine's request, commenting, "It made me feel more secure about this. We definitely felt a void. He's the other parent [to the song]."[8]  The production team for the song include RedOne and musical director Rickey Minor. RedOne said that it took a week to compose "We Are The World 25 For Haiti".[16]  He commented that he wanted to keep the "class of the original one" and did not want to "mess it up, because it's too good".[16]  Although, he did note that he wanted to make the song "sound more now and current" while keeping the originals "whole chord progressions, the feeling and the vibe, but brought fresher sounds that are more now."

We Are The World 25 For Haiti Lyrics
[Justin Bieber]
There comes a time
When we heed a certain call
[Nicole Scherzinger & Jennifer Hudson]
When the world must come together as one
[Jennifer Hudson]
There are people dying
[Jennifer Nettles]
And it’s time to lend a hand to life
The greatest gift of all
[Josh Groban]
We can’t go on
Pretending day by day
[Tony Bennet]
that someone, somehow will soon make a change
[Mary J Blige]
We are all a part of
God’s great big family
And the truth, you know love is all we need
[Chorus]
[Michael Jackson]
We are the world
We are the children
[Michael Jackson and Janet Jackson]
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let’s start giving
[Barbra Streisand]
There’s a choice we’re making
We’re saving our own lives
It’s true we’ll make a better day
Just you and me
[Miley Cyrus]
Send them your heart
So they’ll know that someone cares
[Enrique Iglesias]
so their cries for help
will not be in vain
[Nicole Scherzinger]
We can’t let them suffer

[BeBe Winans]
It’s true we’ll make a better day
Just you and me
[Michael Jackson]
When you’re down and out
There seems no hope at all
[Usher]
But if you just believe
There’s no way we can fall
[Celine Dion]
Well, well, well, well, let us realize
That a change can only come
[Fergie]
When we stand together as one
[Chorus - All]
We are the world
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let’s start giving
[Nick Jonas]
Got to start giving
[All]

Just you and me
[Chorus - All]
We are the world
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let’s start giving
[Akon]
There’s a choice we’re making
We’re saving our own lives
It’s true we make a better day
Just you and me
[T-Pain]

saving our own lives
It’s true we’ll make a better day
Just you and me
[Rapping - LL Cool J, Will-I-Am, Snoop Dogg, Busta Rhymes, Swizz Beatz]
We all need somebody that we can lean on
when you wake up look around and see that your dreams gone
when the earth quakes we’ll help you make it through the storm
when the floor breaks a magic carpet to stand on
we are the World united by love so strong
when the radio isn’t on you can hear the songs
a guided light on the dark road your walking on
a sign post to find the dreams you thought was gone
someone to help you move the obstacles you stumbled on
someone to help you rebuild after the rubble’s gone
we are the World connected by a common bond

[Kanye West]
Everyday citizens

Nou se mond la

[Will-I-Am]
You and I
You and I
[Kanye West]
Uh, 12 days no water
whats your will to live?
[Will-I-Am]

[Kanye West]
Feeling like the Worlds end
we can make the World win
[Will-I-Am]
Like Katrina, Africa, Indonesia
and now Haiti needs us, the need us, they need us
[Chorus - All]
[Wyclef Jean]
