The history of ‘we are the world’ by USA for Africa.

We Are the World This article is about the original 1985 charity song. For other uses, see We Are the World (disambiguation). “We Are the World” Single by USA for Africa from the album We Are the World B-side “Grace” Released March 7, 1985 Format 7″, 12″, VHS single Recorded January 28, 1985 A&M Recording Studios (Los Angeles, California) Genre Pop, gospel Length 7:15 Label Columbia Writer(s) Michael Jackson Lionel Richie Producer(s) Quincy Jones Michael O martian Certification 4× Platinum (RIAA) “We Are the World” is a song and charity single originally recorded by the super group USA for Africa in 1985. It was written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie (with arrangements by Michael O martian) and produced by Quincy Jones for the album We Are the World. With sales in excess of 20 million copies, it is one of the fewer than 30 all-time singles to have sold at least 10 million copies worldwide. Following Band Aid’s “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” project in the UK, an idea for the creation of an American benefit single for African famine relief came from activist Harry Belafonte, who, along with fundraiser Ken Kragen, was instrumental in bringing the vision to reality. Several musicians were contacted by the pair, before Jackson and Richie were assigned the task of writing the song. The duo completed the writing of “We Are the World” seven weeks after the release of “Do They Know It’s Christmas?”, and one night before the song’s first recording session, on January 21, 1985. The historic event brought together some of the most famous artists in the music industry at the time. The song was released on March 7, 1985, as the only single from the album. A worldwide commercial success, it topped music charts throughout the world and became the fastest-selling American pop single in history. The first ever single to be certified multi-platinum, “We Are the World” received a Quadruple Platinum certification by the Recording Industry Association of America. However, the song garnered mixed reviews from journalists, music critics, and the public. Fans enjoyed hearing racially and musically diverse recording artists singing together on one track, and felt satisfied in buying “We Are the World”, knowing that the money was going to charity. Other individuals, including many commentators in the rock press, were disappointed that the song did not challenge listeners as to why famines occur in the first place, and felt that the lyrics were self-aggrandizing. Awarded numerous honors—including three Grammy Awards, one American Music Award, and a People’s Choice Award—the song was promoted with a critically received music video, a home video, a special edition magazine, a simulcast, and several books, posters, and shirts. The promotion and merchandise aided the success of “We Are the World” and raised over $63 million (equivalent to $136 million today) for humanitarian aid in Africa and the US. Following the devastation caused by the magnitude 7.0 Mw earthquake in Haiti on January 12, 2010, a remake of the song by another all-star cast of singers was recorded on February 1, 2010. Entitled “We Are the World 25 for Haiti”, it was released as a single on February 12, 2010, and proceeds from the record aided survivors in the impoverished country.

Trust is meant for the Mature

Be careful don’t trust anyone but ,but  u have to trust someone.

Trust is like a flower,the more its enjoys breeze ,the more chances of it to be ageing ,and we all know what happens when a flower aged,it’s loses its beauty.

The same way when trust grows ,its has high risk of loosing its beauty,so please do your best to guid your trust for it not to grow higher than you can reach els ,a little ageing will end up in chaos.
