Rahman to record MJ's song
Oscar winning musician A.R. Rahman will be a part of the historic remake of Micheal Jackson's 'We are the World' song. The music will be a part of the charity program organized to raise funds for earthquake victims in Haiti.
According to reports, 75 world-class stars, including Celine Dion, Kanye West, Natalie Cole, Tony Bennett, Jonas Brothers, Pink, Barbra Streisand, Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Jamie Foxx, Lil Wayne, Wyclef Jean, Josh Groban, Snoop Dogg, Carlos Santana, Gladys Knight and many others, will be a part of the charity anthem.
The song will be recorded at the Henson Recording studio, where the original song was recorded 25 years back. Oscar-winner Paul Haggis of Crash fame will shoot the video and the album is expected to premiere during the Winter Olympics on February 12.
'We are the World' was originally recorded by the late King of Pop' Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie. It featured around 45 American musicians and has reportedly raised over $30 million for African hunger relief.
