I will admit, that I am not much of a daytime TV fan…and that is why I may have missed the buzz on this one. from what I understand, had I been watching the Cristina show (our Oprah), I would have seen that an A-List group of singers teamed up to remake "We Are The World" in Spanish.
That, plus I have not kept up reading all the PR agency mail I get…and last not least had I just read my friend Meagan's blog (Vivir Latino) or My Latino Voice, I probably would not be the last person amongst my peers to know about this.
So if you have been living under the same rock I have…here is the scoop on Somos El Mundo…from what I understand, Quincy Jones reached out to our own Emilio Estefan to assemble some of the brightest stars in "Latino – America" (not Latino America) to re-record a Spanish version of this song to benefit victims of the Haiti Earthquake. The song has been #1 on I-Tunes for weeks. If you have not heard it…you are about to hear it now…make sure you buy a copy today!
