The program takes a closer look at the huge event behind the recording of the USA for Africa's song and clip 'We Are the World', a massive concentration of influential artists of the period who joined forces to produce a great effort to combat the famine in Africa during the 1980's. Jane Fonda hosts the documentary, which follows the rehearsals for the song, the interaction between the artists and how their collaboration was put together.Written by
"We Are the World" was an all-star ensemble which was the American response to the UK's chart-topping single "Do They Know It's Christmas?" by Band Aid in 1984, which had similarly united many of the biggest British and Irish pop stars for the cause of Ethiopian famine relief. See more »

"Better"? No, no, "brighter". It's gonna be "brighter", now.

Even 20 years after its release, We are the World continues to make my hair rise! The passion, dedication, harmony and sheer beauty of the song makes it a complete anthem and it should go down in history and a world anthem altogether. Congratulations Quincy Jones and every other artist who performed the track. I wait for another. I hadn't watched the video in a while, but I saw it strangely on MTV today and I decided to go back to my old music videos and watch this one. It was incredible, I listened to it repeatedly and was awestruck each time. The spirit of togetherness and harmony amongst the artists makes the experience worth it, every single time. Keep up the good work USA for Africa!
