About USA for Africa | We Are the World
In 1985, major recording artists from the music industry and the world came together for humanitarian aid in response to the tragic famine wreaking havoc in Africa at the time. The “We Are The World” recording went on to sell more than 7 million records worldwide.
Since that time, USA for Africa has raised more than $100,000,000 to help ease the pain of poverty in Africa and the United States. While the challenges seemed insurmountable, our commitment stayed strong. We have accomplished our goal of creating opportunities and impacting real change.
The Music Industry Unites for Famine Relief
Following the lead of Harry Belafonte, artists from the music industry came together and used their voices to try to make a difference. With the musical talents of Producer Quincy Jones taking the lead, Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie, along with more than 40 other artists, embarked on the challenge to inspire people worldwide to use their collective power to make the world a better place.
“We Are the World” motivated millions to become activists in their own way. Their bold, individual and collective power brought change to their communities and beyond. Lives were transformed. Access to food, education, health care and peace became a reality for many who had been left out. “We Are the World” became a movement…your movement. And, decades later, it still resonates.
