As everyone knows by now, the huge hit song from the 80's "we are the world" written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie, was remade this year to help the people of Haiti. The song debuted this weekend at the opening of the Winter Olympics in Canada. Even though the song went to number on iTunes this weekend and has already raised a lot of money to help the poor people of Haiti hit by earthquakes, not everyone is a fan of the song. Artists like Jay-Z have said they think there should have been a brand new song written, instead of a new version of the first "We are the world". Jay-Z thinks the first one was so special, it should have stayed untouched by a remix. What do you think? Here is the new version and the old for you to watch and vote on!
