We Are the World was written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie and recorded as a benefit for African famine relief in 1985. This single record became the fastest-selling pop single in recording history. No wonder the recording took the number one spot on pop charts all over the world. Scored in a relaxed style, it's a natural for your audience to join in on the final chorus. This arrangement is a wonderful tribute to Jackson, a notable philanthropist and humanitarian who donated and raised million of dollars through his own Heal the World Foundation. Charming!
