Quincy Jones is re-recording the charity song “We Are the World” and sending the proceeds to Haiti.
The 76-year-old music legend says musicians are gathering Monday at a Los Angeles recording studio to redo the 25-year-old hit song.
Jones would not say who will perform on the track “because we’ve got to make sure we’ve got who we got,” but that the revamped song will feature a new roster of all-star musicians.
The original 1985 hit, written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie, featured Bruce Springsteen, Cyndi Lauper, Stevie Wonder, Billy Joel and Tina Turner, among others.
