2010: To raise money for victims of the January 2010 earthquake in Haiti, a remake of the 1985 famine charity single "We Are the World" featuring more than 80 artists is released. The new version features revised lyrics as well as a rap segment pertaining to Haiti. It also features a duet between Janet Jackson and her late brother Michael Jackson through the use of archival material from the original 1985 recording. Some of the stars who sang on the track included Justin Bieber, Jennifer Hudson, Tony Bennett, Barbra Streisand, Wyclef Jean, Adam Levine, Pink, Usher and Toni Braxton. The song would sell more than 267,000 downloads in its first three days and reach No. 2 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart.
