Format: MP3 Music
This 25th Anniversary remake of We Are the world is a mix of good and bad. Most Acts brought their A Game but there are 4 main problems with the remake

1. Janet Jackson's vocals - Either she's barely singing or she sounds so much like her late brother Michael. Either way, You can barely tell she's singing

2. Akon was unnecessarily auto-tuned. I don't fault t-pain on this since it's his trademark

3. Lil Wayne had a singing part. Faith Evans, Trey Songz, Jordin Sparks, Keri Hilson, Brandy Norwood, Gladys Knight, Natalie Cole, Anthony Hamilton, India.Arie, Jason Mraz, Melanie Fiona, and Musiq Soulchild are a few of the acts in the choir. Any one of them, especially Faith Evans would have been perfect to do this part. I saw An interview With Lil Wayne where he even stated he couldn't even believe they wanted him to do Bob Dylan's part. So they should have used someone else.

4. the rap - Excellent lyrics, however, All you can hear is LL cool J. This is where Lil Wayne should have had his part. Busta Rhymes, Swizz Beatz, Snoop dogg were in it also. But LL cool J's voice over powers everyone else. The rappers should have taken turns like the main singing acts.

It seems as if they wanted to have the current newbies, Strong voices, legends and hot young acts do most of the main acts, Hence why Justin Bieber opened (Newbie/Hot young act), Barbra Streisand did Diana Ross' Part and LL cool J led the rap (legends).

I know it's about helping Haiti but because we're buying a song to donate to Haiti, It's gotta be something people are willing to buy, so the We Are The World Foundation can actually give money to Haiti.
