A United Effort! ✨🌎✨


The above song, entitled ‘We Are The World’ was originally released in 1985, as an American benefit single for African famine relief. Amazingly, 35 years later, the lyrics (partially reproduced below) still seem so relevant in Year 2020! Over the years, there have been other singers who did their own rendition but in my opinion, this version certainly ‘packs a punch’. The singers’ voices are so powerful and I am truly impressed.

I believe when meaningful lyrics are sung with passion, it can certainly move people’s 💓 Heart 💓! And so, may this version open our hearts and unite us as One ☝🏼, to overcome the many challenges facing us now.

“There comes a time,
When we heed a certain call,
When the world must come together as One.
There are people dying,
Oh, and it’s time to lend a hand to life-
The greatest gift of all.

We can’t go on
Pretending day-by-day
That someone, somewhere soon will make a change.
We’re all a part of God’s great big family,
And the truth, you know, love is all we need.

We are the world.
We are the children.
We are the ones who make a brighter day, so let’s start giving.
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”
