We Are The World 25th Anniversary remake

The list of music stars spending their day today participating in the 25th anniversary remake of "We Are The World" has grown to more than 100.

The song, which was originally written by Lionel Richie and Michael Jackson, is being remade today to benefit earthquake victims in Haiti, because of the large concentration of people in the music business who were in Los Angeles last night for the Grammy awards. Lionel Richie along with Quincy Jones is heading up the remake effort.

The list of artists reportedly now includes Lady Gaga and U2's Bono (who were both recruited at the Grammys last night), Usher, Akon, Carlos Santana, Enrique Iglesias, Toni Braxton, Jason Mraz, Trey Songz, Natalie Cole, John Legend, Sting, Fergie, Alicia Keys, and Justin Timberlake. Also, its reported that Michael Jackson's memory will somehow be included on the track.

I'm sure my phone will ring any minute with my request to be included......
