Even 20 years after its release, We are the World continues to make my hair rise! The passion, dedication, harmony and sheer beauty of the song makes it a complete anthem and it should go down in history and a world anthem altogether. Congratulations Quincy Jones and every other artist who performed the track. I wait for another. I hadn't watched the video in a while, but I saw it strangely on MTV today and I decided to go back to my old music videos and watch this one. It was incredible, I listened to it repeatedly and was awestruck each time. The spirit of togetherness and harmony amongst the artists makes the experience worth it, every single time. Keep up the good work USA for Africa!
