Songz, Evans Featured ‘We Are The World’ Premiere Set

The world premiere of “We Are The World 25 For Haiti” has been set ! According to organizers, the anticipated song and video will premiere during NBC’s coverage of the Opening Ceremony of the Vancouver Winter Olympics this Friday, February 12 at 7:30 p.m. ET/6:30 C.T. Academy Award-winning writer-director Paul Haggis (Crash, Million Dollar Baby) filmed the private recording session to create the accompanying video and “behind-the-scenes” production, and serves as Film Director and as an Executive Producer with Jones, Richie, Jean, Phillips and Tortorici. Following the world premiere, the song will be made available for download at world25.org. Downloads will also be available on iTunes. Through a partnership with YouTube, a video for “We Are the World 25” will be available to view on a YouTube Channel (www.youtube.com/wearetheworld). Immediate donations will be made possible by clicking on the “Donate Now” button on YouTube or by downloading the song on iTunes. “It warmed my heart to see that the experience during the recording of We Are The World 25 For Haiti embodied the same enthusiasm, sense of purpose and generosity as the original recording 25 years ago,” says Quincy Jones. “Every one of the artists who participated, regardless of genre or generation, walked into the room with their hearts and souls completely open to coming together to help the people of Haiti. Through the contributions of their voices to this new rendition of ‘We Are The World,’ and with the help of our partners, the We Are The World Foundation will be the most transparent not-for-profit foundation ever created.”
