Here is the revamped music video of “We are the World.” Now called “We are the World-25 for Haiti.”
Haters out there talking about how it sucks. I don’t think it sucks at all and I am not comparing it to the original. It is modern and more relevant to these times.
Two complaints though; why the heck did they make Lil’Wayne one of the featured artist, yuck! and some of the lyrics were revised; taking mention of God out of the picture. What’s up with that, who can lend a helping hand greater than God? I’m scared to live in a world trying to live without God.
And their lives will be stronger and free
As God has shown us by turning stones to bread
And so we all must lend a helping hand
So their cries for help will not be in vain
We can’t let them suffer
No we cannot turn away
Right now they need a helping hand
I like the duet with Janet and Micheal Jackson; I like the Hip-Hop ensemble; I like most of the artists featured in the video excluding Lil’Wayne; I like the scenes depicting a hopeful spirit of the Haitian people amidst tragedy. I think it is a cool video. I hope it raises alot of money to help Haiti and inspire people to give whatever they can. After all that is what it is all about, right?
