On September 5 and 7, 2001, an ensemble of superstar artists gathered in New York City to record a new version of "What's Going On," Marvin Gaye's classic call for compassion, healing and love, in order to raise awareness and funds to fight against the scourge of AIDS in Africa.
Clear Channel Radio & MTV To Premiere "What's Going On" Across The Country On Friday, September 21
In the wake of the tragic terrorist attacks on the United States on September 11, Artists Against AIDS Worldwide, realizing the recording's powerful healing message extended beyond the scope of the project's original aim, decided to donate 50% of its proceeds to The United Way's September 11th Fund and 50% to the AIDS relief effort which includes the Global AIDS Alliance, among others.
There are about 51 different re-mixes of the song.
I saw the video for 'Whats Going On' on MTV the other day.
Its not so bad of a song.. i guess.. at least the money they make off it (if any) is going to help people out.
There is a flash lyrics version of the song which you can listen to and read right here!
when you read the lyrics just click on the verse and it will play! Its wicked how that works!
I know this isn't really a loud entry but i like to keep up on music news and how the terrorist attacks are or might effect the music we listen to.
keep it loud!
