Gossiponthis.com is reporting that the music video for â€œWe Are the World: 25 for Haitiâ€ debuted Friday night (Feb 12) during the opening ceremony for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver.
This version of the song, featuring vocals from Justin Bieber, Jennifer Hudson, Lil Wayne, Janet Jackson, Miley Cyrus, Jamie Foxx, Mary J. Blige, Kanye West, T-Pain, Usher, Wyclef Jean and much more, is much more contemporary than the original but it fits todayâ€™s music era. The songâ€™s original writer and singer Michael Jackson also appears in the song and video (his sister Janet sings the first chorus with footage of Mike thrown in). They also kept one of MJâ€™s original parts and show footage of him singing it (Nice!).
The 25th Anniversary recording features over 80 artists and performers. The recording of We Are The World 25 For Haiti embodied the same enthusiasm, sense of purpose and generosity as the original recording 25 years ago. Every one of the artists who participated, regardless of genre or generation, walked into the room with their hearts and souls completely open to coming together to help the people of Haiti.
The video shows footage of Haiti and the efforts surrounding its repair, along with footage of the artists mentioned above and more recording the song in the studio. If MJ was here he would be so happy..
Nelly is working on crossing over into the world of daytime television. He recently spoke to one of my homies and announced that he is developing a talk show with a few of his hip-hop and R&B cohorts. Nelly explains, quote, “It’s me, Jermaine Dupri, Trey Songz, Johnta Auston, Brian Michael Cox and Tyrone ‘International’ Davis(JD’s Right Hand Man). We’re working on kind of like the male version of ‘The View.'” Nelly says he has always wanted to branch out, but turned down a lot of previous offers because, quote, “I felt I wasn’t ready yet.” He adds, quote, “I never want to disrespect the culture and the thing that is acting, thinking just because I’m Nelly I’m going to transition and be good at it.”
A possible debut date for Nelly’s new television project has not been announced. Nelly is also currently working on his untitled, sixth studio album. The record is expected in stores later this year.
