It is the 35th Anniversary of the charity song- "We Are The World"! Lionel Richie has said he’s considering recording a new version of ‘We Are The World’ to raise money for the fight against coronavirus.

The ‘Dancing On The Ceiling’ singer said he was not expecting to mark the 35th anniversary of the charity track – which featured the likes of Michael Jackson, Diana Ross and Cyndi Lauper, but he now believes that the pandemic has made its message “so clear” once again.

“Two weeks ago, we said we didn’t want to do too much [about the song] because this is not the time to sell an anniversary. But the message is so clear,” Richie explained.

He also singled out the significance of the chorus line: “There’s a choice we’re making, we’re saving our own lives.”
