[Justin Bieber]
There comes a time
When we hear a certain call
[Nicole Scherzinger & Jennifer Hudson]
When the world must come together as one
[Jennifer Hudson]
There are people dying
[Jennifer Nettles]
And it's time to lend a hand to life
The greatest gift of all
[Josh Groban]
We can't go on
Pretending day by day
[Tony Bennet]
That someone, somehow will soon make a change
[Mary J Blige]
We are all a part of
God's great big family
And the truth, you know love is all we need

[Chorus]
[Michael Jackson]
We are the world
We are the children
[Michael Jackson and Janet Jackson]
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let's start giving
[Barbra Streisand]
There's a choice we're making
We're saving our own lives
It's true we'll make a better day
Just you and me

[Miley Cyrus]
Send them your heart
So they'll know that someone cares
[Enrique Iglesias]
So there cries for help
Will not be in vein
[Nicole Scherzinger]
We can't let them suffer
No we cannot turn away
[Jamie Foxx]
Right now they need a helping hand
[Wyclef Jean]
Nou se mond la
We are the Children
[Adam Levine]
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So lets start giving
[Pink]
There's a choice we're making
We're saving our own lives
[BeBe Winans]
It's true we'll make a better day
Just you and me

[Michael Jackson]
When you're down and out
There seems no hope at all
[Usher]
But if you just believe
There's no way we can fall
[Celine Dion]
Well, well, well, well, let us realize
That a change can only come
[Fergie]
When we stand together as one

[Chorus - All]
We are the world
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let's start giving
[Nick Jonas]
Got to start giving
[All]
There's a choice we're making
We're saving our own lives
[Toni Braxton]
It's true we'll make a better day
Just you and me
[Mary Mary]
We are the world
We are the children
[Tony Bennet]
It's for the children
[Isaac Slade]
We are the ones who make a brighter day
[Toni Braxton]
So lets start giving

[Lil Wayne]
There's a choice we're making
We're saving our own lives
It's true we'll make a better day
Just you and me

[Chorus - All]
We are the world
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let's start giving
[Akon]
There's a choice we're making
We're saving our own lives
It's true we make a better day
Just you and me

[T-Pain]
We are the world
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let's start giving
[Jamie Foxx imitating Ray Charles]
Choice were making
Saving our own lives
It's true we'll make a better day
Just you and me

[Rap - LL Cool J, Will-I-Am, Snoop Dogg, Busta Rhymes, Swizz Beatz]
We all need somebody that we can lean on
When you wake up look around and see that your dreams gone
When the earth quakes we'll help you make it through the storm
When the floor breaks a magic carpet to stand on
We are the World united by love so strong
When the radio isn't on you can hear the songs
A guided light on the dark road your walking on
A sign post to find the dreams you thought was gone
Someone to help you move the obstacles you stumbled on
Someone to help you rebuild after the rubble's gone
We are the World connected by a common bond
Love the whole planet sing it along

[Chorus - All]

[Kanye West]
Everyday citizens
Everybody pitching in

[Singing - Children & Wyclef Jean]
Nou se mond la
Nou se timoun yo

[Will-I-Am]
You and I
You and I
[Kanye West]
Uh, 12 days no water
Wishing will to live
[Will-I-Am]
We amplified the love we watching multiply
[Kanye West]
Feeling like the Worlds end
We can make the World win
[Will-I-Am]
Like Katrina, Africa, Indonesia
And now Haiti needs us, the need us, they need us

[Chorus - All]
[Wyclef Jean]
Haiti, Haiti, Ha, Ha, ha, ha, ha
Haiti, Haiti, Ha, Ha, ha, ha, ha
Haiti, Haiti, Ha, Ha, ha, ha, ha

    Cool song. It includes some Disney channel stars and mostly non- disney channel stars. It should be the anthem for Friends for Change

    Cool first one to comment! I love this song but i think the remix is way better. So cool. So new, with the raps and stuff, it really matches the 21st yrs.
