“We Are the World”

I feel as though some of the strongest and most significant forms of media are expressed through art such as paintings, music, and videos. I chose a song that is significant to me personally and to society. This song is a remake of Michael Jackson’s, “We Are the World.” These artists came together in hopes of raising money for Haiti’s hurricane victims when it hit in 2010. This song signifies how people need to join together during difficult times from all different walks of life. Artists from each genre joined in to create the song and donate the proceeds to charity. Some lines include, “it’s time to lend a hand to life,” and “we are the ones who make a brighter day to let’s start giving.” This form of media was a direct plea to people around the world to do the best that they can to make the world a better place and I believe that it sent a great message. The youtube video has hundreds of millions of views which shows the widespread attention that the song brought to the cause.
