I was honored to be asked to co-produce, with Quincy Jones and Wyclef Jean, this remake of “We Are The World” to raise money for victims of the earthquake that devastated Haiti in 2010.

Nearly 100 celebrities appeared on the recording — including Patti Austin, Tony Bennett, Justin Bieber, Mary J. Blige, Toni Braxton, Jeff Bridges, Miley Cyrus, Celine Dion, Fergie, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Hudson, Janet Jackson, Wyclef Jean (who also served as a producer), Nick Jonas, Gladys Knight, Lil Wayne, Mary Mary, Pink, Barbra Streisand, Usher, Kanye West, and BeBe Winans.

The 2010 update of the song also featured a rap section, including hip-hop stars Busta Rhymes, LL Cool J, Snoop Dogg, Swizz Beatz and I produced several of the vocal performances, was one of several conductors during the choir session, and was responsible for the final editing and assembly of the vocals.
