We Are The World 2010 For Haiti Part 2

After this, I had to do it again. Its just too... well, tragic. No pun or offense intended.

I checked the musicians who participated on the orginal We Are The World.

Seriously?

Again I totally support the cause. I know its for a good cause. But in a strictly musical sense, this is just sad. I know they are all famous and can attract a wide audience, but Justin Bieber? Lil Wayne? Jonas Brothers?

The original had Stevie Wonder, James Ingram, Steve Perry and Bruce Springsteen just to name a few. Think about it.

It was good that they let MJ do the chorus still. And I didn't see Eminem anywhere too.

I am not saying that all artists in the new version are crap. Im saying some are. And the whole idea that we (this musical generation) had to re-do a timeless classic speaks a lot about our creative power.

Anyway, for the important sstuff-
