"We are the World" – 25 Years ago and Today

Well if you don’t know, the current crop of “stars” banded together to re-record the classic “We are the World” done 25 years ago. It premiered during the Winter Olympic Opening Ceremony.

Personally, I thought the newest version sucked. The best parts were Jennifer Hudson, Celine, Pink and Barbara Streisand. The Michael/Janet part was cute but you could hardly hear her. The rest was awful and the rap part was totally not needed.
There are certain songs you just don’t touch and this is one of them.
I think this was just a spring board for artists who are total unknowns and for more established artists whose career is on the decline.
I’ve posted both the original and new version. I want to hear your thoughts on the new one!
The original
The new one!
