“We Are the World” Video

I love what is happening out there in the world. Is changing out there. Seeing it as a reflection of what is happening inside of me. What is changing inside of me. In my world.

The new version features updated lyrics and music, as well as a rap segment pertaining to Haiti.

I choose to see all these things above what else what others might see and thus contribute to a better world myself.

I love the world we are living in today!
