Quincy Jones has added some more star power to his remake of “We Are The World.” As Hollyscoop previously reported, Jones, the original producer of the track, and Lionel Richie, a co-writer, have teamed up to redo the song with new artists.
And according to E!, Lady Gaga and Bono have both joined the group of artists for the remake, which has become a who’s who of the music industry. Usher, Jason Mraz, Akon, Jennifer Hudson, Carlos Santana, Enrique Iglesias, and Toni Braxton are amongst the others involved.
According to the report, Richie and Jones recruited Gaga and Bono at last night’s Grammys. Gaga’s producer RedOne will also work on the track, which has reportedly become a 100-person job.
"It's like the biggest honor in life to get a call from our father in music, Quincy Jones," he told E!.
We can’t wait to hear this! Talk about epic! It’ll be tough to match the original recording, but with this many star artists, it’s bound to be incredible. The artists are reportedly in the studio beginning the recording today. Proceeds from the track will be going to help those in need in the country of Haiti.
