Late King of Pop, Michael Jackson will appear in the 25th anniversary remake of âWe Are The World” ! According to Access Hollywood, Jackson’s vocals will be featured alongside a previously announced line up of entertainers that includes Trey Songz, Jennifer Hudson, Toni Braxton and Robin Thicke. Lionel Richie and Quincy Jones, who, along with Jackson, brought the original version to life in 1985, told Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson that the King of Popâs original vocals and footage would be used in the song and video. But Jackson is not the only addition, he will appear posthumously in a split-screen with his sister, Janet Jackson (in the accompanying video). “To have Michaelâs presence singing his part is the best gift we could ever get,” Lionel Richie said in a statement. The video and song are set to premiere Friday, February 12.
