Live Aid 20 has spawned a monster. Producer gnome extrordinaire Jermaine Dupri is set to revamp the charity single "We Are The World", in this the 20th Anniversary year, at a post-Grammy Awards party. Dupri says, "It's called 'We Are The Future'. Quincy Jones called me, he asked me to do it. We're just gonna make it something extravagant". A host of new marginal acts who didn't perform on the original USA For Africa single 20 years ago will take time out of their Grammy night celebrations to sing for him on February 13 in the same studios where the original charity single was recorded in 1985.
Adding, "We gonna try to re-create, follow in the footsteps of those who made a big record before, like Michael Jackson, Quincy and Lionel Richie. Hopefully Usher will be there, Kanye West, Jay-Z, all the bigwigs. We want to do what they did way back when. I'm looking forward to that." I can't wait to hear all the soulful vocal gymnastics going on this one. It was not noted where the funds raised will go, but hopefully they will find a worthy cause.
