We Are The World Haiti

In the Christmas holidays Haiti had an earthquake and thousands of people died. It happened on the 12th of January 2010. Haiti turned into a disaster zone. It was so sad that they showed it all over the news. While I watched it I saw people with no food, water and shelter. They had no choice but to sleep where ever they could. One amazing thing was that some survivors lasted over a week.

So lots of good singers made a new version of "We Are The World" to raise lots of money to help the people of Haiti. The song was originally made before I was born by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie.

I really liked the new version because some of my favourite singers were in it, such as Usher, Justin Bieber, Micheal Jackson, Wyclef and others. I liked Wyclef because his voice sounded very cool. Did you know that he is from Haiti?

I hope the song makes stacks of money to help Haiti. So if you want to see the new version of the song go on Youtube and look up "We Are The World" Haiti.


  1. Hi Kingston,
    Well done for writing about such a sad event in the world. We are very lucky that here in Auckland we don't have earthquakes and we haven't had to deal with a disaster like the people of Haiti have had to. I think it's great that famous people such as all those singers are willing to do their bit to help others in need.
    It's also great that you are keeping in touch with important things going on in the world. Keep it up.

  2. Kia Ora Kingston,
    What a great post! You're right, it was a very sad time and I do hope they raise lots of money to help rebuild this nation. Have you heard the original version of this song? Which do you prefer?

  4. Hey Kingston
    What a great blog you have, keep up the good work.


  5. Hi Kingston

    Its great to know more people like you care about people in this world who are affected by disasters such as that in Haiti. Don't we all wish could fly over there and rebuild their lives again! Just makes me think how greatful we are to be in a country that doesn't have these sorts of disasters.

    well done Kingston.

    bye for now

  6. What a wonderful post Kingston. I love the way you have noticed the plight of others and taken time to find out about what happened. I agree with you that it is great to have a remix of the "We are the World" song. This is a fantastic blog your are creating. Keep up the good work. Mrs Burt

  7. Hi Kingston

    I like this post about Haiti and the "We are the World" song. I have heard you singing this song at the top of your lungs for the last few weeks at home, so I know you really enjoy singing it. I hope that what happened to Haiti never happens in NZ because there was so much devastation. I also hope that the people of Haiti are able to rebuild their lives and that people give generously to help rebuild their nation. Great post.

    Mum xx
