Access has since updated its story, stating that although Taylor Swift will not lend her voice to the track, a line-up of all-star performers could be expected to participate in the remake. Miley Cyrus
, Jennifer Hudson
, Will Smith
, Jason Mraz
, Sheryl Crow
and Justin Bieber
are among those mentioned.
The original "We Are the Word" track was recorded in 1985 for African famine relief. It featured performances by Stevie Wonder
, Ray Charles
, Bruce Springsteen
, Tina Turner
and Diana Ross
among many others. As for the remake, Showbiz 411 reported it is done to mark the 25th anniversary of the song and all proceeds will go to Haiti relief.
