Product Description:

On January 28, 1985, countless artists set out to change the world, one song at a time. Go behind the scenes and watch as music history is made, with 45 top-billing musicians joining together in a song to work towards an end to hunger and suffering in Africa and America. The world took note as more than 5,000 radio stations played "We Are the World" simultaneously, and the song's success, which included multiple Grammy Awards and bestselling status, was a triumph for the international community at large. The artists who participated in the event included Bette Midler, Diana Ross, Cyndi Lauper, Willie Nelson, Tina Turner, Bob Dylan, and Waylon Jennings, among many others. The song itself was written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Ritchie, and this moving documentary special is narrated by Jane Fonda.
