We are the World

On the night of the Olympics opening ceremonies, We Are The World 25 For Haiti (it's a remake of the original that was written 25 years ago to raise funds for the crisis that took place in Ethiopia) premiered to raise money for the reconstruction of Haiti. The video and song were downloaded at our household that very night and one or the other now plays almost around the clock. I get chills every single time I listen to it. Every time. Las woke up during the middle of the night and couldn't go back to sleep for another hour and a half because it was stuck in her head. She couldn't stand it the next day but I'm sure she'll be over it by the end of today. I'm not tiring of it yet. Because we sing it so much around the house, we now can imitate the different mannerisms and voice variances of the individual singers. You may say we are big fans around here but I must correct you by saying that no, we are not big fans, we are the world. Watch the official video below to feel the love. How fitting for this Valentine season!

Note: It's better to watch it in a larger frame. Click the four arrows on the bottom of the clip or watch it on youtube HERE.
