We Can All Make a Difference

Jan 26th 2011 at 1:11 PM

This morning, Terri Posted a link in the group where we Share a video VIDEO Do You remember this one we are the World here at IM Faceplate. She was asking if  we remembered We Are the World. Here is the original Song that she posted: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D1Ufv65L39s

The Original Song Came out in 1985, With sales in excess of 20 million copies and  it is one of the fewer than thirty all-time singles to have sold 10 million (or more) copies worldwide.(quoted from Wikipedia,)

After listening to this Awesome song .. other video's showed up to select from at You Tube:

I then watched: David Spates stating their was going to be a Re-make of this song!

Where on earth have I been - I asked myself ????

Well, You know exactly what I did, I did a search to see long I had my head stuck in the sand LOL

I found it: We Are The World 25 For Haiti - Official Video

The song was recorded in fourteen and a half hours by over eighty artists on February 1, and was released on February 12, 2010, during the opening ceremony of the 2010 Winter Olympics. (Quoted From Wikipedia)

I saw Michael Jackson singing in this video.. which I found out during more investigation that they had added him in, that he had already passed away when they did this Re-Make.

Well.. Of course .. One thing always leads to another investigation LOL

During the searching I found a News Clip with Diane Sawyer Talks with Lisa Lavie about her popular Web video 03/19/2010

WHAT!!!!! Okay Now I know My Head has been in the SAND . and DEEPLY Seeded! LOL

So.. here I go again.. do another search and WALA BULLS EYE I found this Remarkable Video of  Regular People Making this video!

57 PEOPLE! This was done exceptionally well, take a listen and watch this: We Are The World 25 For Haiti (YouTube Edition) 4,237,350 views at the time of writing this Article.

Now it is one thing for Celebrities to all get together to sing to Raise Money for a Good Cause such as the First Version and then the Remake for Haiti But to see Ordinary People work together to Make this Video (which I am sure it took quite a bit of Work to do!) It just brings Tears to my Eyes, with Joy. I don't know about you .. but this one really hit me strongly. Excellent Singing from all of them!

Here is a Video Telling More about this Video Being Made: We Are The World (Youtube Edition) on CNN / PART 1

WOW, and Here is Another Version made by Regular People! We are the world 25 for Haiti ( Internet edition )

70,274 views at the time of writing this.

The Above Video had a lot of Young People Singing.

Singing their hearts out, trying to make a difference. They are the Future! I thought this version was also Awesome to See!

My husband found this one.. another awesome version We Are The World 25 For Haiti - 2010 Remake - Michael Jackson (acoustic cover) - Tyler Ward and Crew

Michael Jackson We are the world-lyrics (solo version)

Like Anything on the Internet there is a VIRAL Affect. I could stay all day doing searches and Watching Videos on You Tube Each time I look their is More and More showing up!

I want to hear from you ..

which video you liked best and how watching these videos affected you in any way?

Let's All Make an Impact on Others Lives

Help Others As Much as We Can

No matter how small

Best Wishes to You All

Dee Note:

Here is an Article I found about the You Tube Version and about Lisa Lavie who started the You Tube Version.

Excellent job Dee. We sure have a responsibility outside ourselves. "To whom much is given, much shall be required."

What a super great article. I just love that video that's why I posted it up because it is so true. We Are the World, so let's help one another and just be ourselves and be for real. When it's all said and done, it's not all about money, it's about caring and loving one another.
