USA for Africa
USA for Africa (United Support of Artists for Africa), was the name under which forty-five US artists, led by Harry Belafonte, Kenny Rogers, Michael Jackson, and Lionel Richie, recorded the hit single "We Are the World" in 1985. The song was a UK Number One for the collective in April of that year.
The considerable profits from the enterprise went to the USA for Africa Foundation, which used them for the relief of famine and disease in Africa.
A recording of the live performance was released with the Live Aid DVD set released on November 8 2004.
