USA For Africa (United Support of Artists for Africa) are already delivering services to the most seriously-affected African nations. Agencies will be asked to provide a list of those items which are needed for them to complete their tasks; USA for Africa will then obtain the items and deliver them to the agencies. Under this system, USA for Africa will use its monies for direct assistance, rather than agency overhead.

The 12 most seriously-affected countries in Africa: Angola, Burkina Faso, Chad, Ethiopia, Ghana, Mali, Mauritania, Mozambique, Niger, Somalia, Sudan and Uganda. We may not be able to solve all their problems tomorrow, but we will try. We can't not try.

WHAT YOU CAN DO:

1. Buy the single, album, video and related USA for Africa merchandise. If you buy a sweatshirt or t-shirt, wear it. Whatever the medium, the message remains the same: people need help.

2. Make a donation. You can contribute directly to the USA for Africa foundation at:

6420 Wilshire Blvd., 19th Floor
Los Angeles, CA 90048

USA FOR AFRICA WILL USE THE MONEY TO COMBAT HUNGER IN THE U.S. AND AFRICA.

3. Organize an event - a car wash, a bake sale, a garage sale - and raise both money and awareness. Host a party where guests are invited to make any contribution they can afford; urge guests to have their own parties.

4. Work within your school, church or civic group. You can keep people informed, invite expert speakers to address your group, encourage your local school to create an African Development Day, form a USA for Africa task force in your community. Use your imagination - everything helps.

5. Ask local media - newspapers, magazines, radio and television stations - to help keep the hunger problem visible. Ask local businesses to contribute money, time, personnel, equipment or facilities needed for USA for Africa events. Don't give up! Suffering in Africa and elsewhere won't end overnight; neither should anyone's efforts to help.

In storing and handling the Compact Disc. you should apply the same care as with conventional records. No further cleaning will be necessary if the Compact Disc is always held by the edges and is replaced in its case directly after playing.

Michael Joseph Jackson
Review written by Anonymous, September 9th, 2009

It is still hard to believe that the genius and kindness that was Michael Jackson has left us. While songs like the title track (widely reported as being mostly written by Jackson alone, further supported by recently released early demos of his) will likely live on forever and bring to mind humanitarian causes like giving to those in need...hearing them gives a sense of full circle/closure/loss/celebration for rare artists like Jackson who led the way.

3/5.03/5.03/5.03/5.03/5.0
Lots of filler, but interesting filler
Review written by John Fitzgerald, June 30th, 2005

As Lindsey was in the chorus of "We are the world" with about 46 other people, there's no way he can be spotted but we know that's the song he's on and hearing it now years after all the hype, it is a pretty nice song although maybe a little long. It's obvious that those behind this project really only cared about the single because the rest is definite filler. There are some interesting moments in that some of the recordings don't sound usual for the artist it represents at all such is the case on the saxophone led ballad by Steve Perry "If only for the moment girl" and the guitar driven Prince number "4 the tears in your eyes". Chicago's 80's records did abandon the horn section but they sound even less like themselves on "Good for nothing". Fans of Canadian rock may enjoy Northern Lights "Tears are not enough" as they were sort of Canada's answer to USA for Africa. I personally prefer the two rocking live tracks. Bruce Springsteen's "Trapped" & Huey Lewis' "Trouble in paradise". Tina Turner's "Total control" was produced by then Bob Welch producer (John) Carter and Kenny Rogers "A little more love" was produced by one of Billy Burnette's partners in crime years ago David Malloy. Other than that, not much else to report.
