By Michael Kerner HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on March 6, 2010
There are sometimes moments where a remake can be a strong moment for the world, or a song that has lost all of the luster in the world. That unfortunately is the case with the remake of We Are The World 25 For Haiti. I really felt with all of the chemistry from Rihanna, tween sensation Justin Bieber, Kanye West and Josh Groban tried to deliver as well as many others, didn't really seem to spark nor ignite the magic and star power that the original We Are The World had definitely showed 25 years ago, when Lionel Richie & Michael Jackson originally worte the song for African famine relief. While the thought of having a bit from the original recording of Michael's voice is a sentimental part of the song, the overall chemistry from each of the singers just wasn't as strong. If you really want to make a strong contribution to those suffering in Haiti, try a song from the Hope For Haiti digital album instead. I also felt the feeling of remaking the song was a bit too soon, especially because of Michael Jackson's death back in June. If you want to download the song though, it still is for a good cause, and that is a way to help Haiti recover from the heartbreak it is going thorugh right now.

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.

The concept of the song holds true as a need to create camaraderie and brotherhood among the masses. However this doesn't quite hold up on the emotional end as well as the song that preceded it. Perhaps the motivation behind this song was different and thus yielded a different result.

I bought this song more to support Haiti than for the actual music. It's an okay song, not my favorite.
