Everything that was wrong with 'We Are the World' they got right in this celebrity music project.

I love this video because (1) the music makes me happy, and (2) it's a breath of fresh air amid the "let's have compassion for Africa and send them donations" appeals.I confess that when I was 13, I was totally enchanted by Diana Ross and Cyndi Lauper singing "We Are the World" to raise money for Africa. But finding ways to get behind systemic change instead of feel-good generosity is what's really needed ... and that's exactly what these artists are going for.
