No longer content to watch Africa struggle in the grip of widespread famine, a broad coalition of legendary American musical artists came together in 1985 to perform "we Are the World," in a fundraising effort that would also create a classic song that would rocket to the top of the charts, and this year's hottest artists will be performing it again Monday for the people of Haiti.

A day after this year's Grammy Awards, the song will be remade in a relief effort for the earthquake-stricken Haitians, and hope for the same amount of success. This year's cast of stars will include Bono, Lady Gaga, Carlos Santana, Wyclef Jean, Usher, Akon and Jason Mraz, with Quincy Jones and Lionel Richie will producing the new version of the track.

The original version of the song won three Grammy Awards and one American Music Awards, selling more than 20 million copies and raising more than $63 million for Africa charities in the process. The original artists included Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Billy Joel, Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, Willie Nelson and Diana Ross.
