Michael Jackson

We Are The World documentary

28 Jan, 1985

Jackson releases a behind-the-scenes look at the making of We are the World. Jackson chose to write the song with a group of multi-racial popular singers to sing as an ensemble to fight the famine in Africa. The documentary is hosted by Jane Fonda.

First I’d like to thank God and I’d like to just thank you for choosing Lionel and myself to write We are the World. I thank Quincy Jones who’s the greatest producer to me. I’d also like to say when you leave here, remember the children.
