This Day in History: “We Are the World” Released

Today, March 7, marks thirty-three years since “We Are the World” viewable here was released. As a youth I enjoyed singing along with the numerous vocal greats, and the powerful melody and lyrics have come to take on a deeper meaning to many.

Co-written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie, the single instantly rose to the top of the charts and generated $63 Million, (nearly $141 Million in today’s value), marking a collaborative effort by artist that moved people by the droves to donate to the needy cause. More info on the single can be found on Wikipedia.

Creatives with vision have the power to impact our world!
